Icon 10 - Black Madonna

Icon 10 - Black Madonna
Copyright (1990) James Prineas

This is one of several icons which was stored in the church of Agia Triatha in Mitata. While I was living there in the late 1980's I was visited by some professional art restorers from Germany, and they cleaned about a dozen icons. Some of the icons in this series are pre-cleaning, others post.

We welcome any commentary about the images.
