Wood carved icon of the Mother of God “Softening Evil Hearts”

The carved wooden icon of the Mother of God “Softening Evil Hearts” is made of solid beech wood. Hand-painted.

The icon depicts the Most Holy Theotokos pierced by seven swords — this image is written on the words of the prophecy of the holy righteous Simeon, uttered in the Jerusalem temple on the fortieth day after the Nativity of Christ: “Behold, this lies for the fall and for the rebellion of many in Israel and the subject of controversy, and The weapon itself will penetrate your soul.” The swords are a symbol of sorrow and heartache that the Most Pure One experienced during her earthly life.

In front of this powerful icon people use to pray for the softening of evil hearts, for the end of enmity between loved ones and for the birth of a sense of mercy in the souls of people.

Such an icon will be a wonderful gift for our loved ones, mothers and grandmothers.

Due to the color rendition of some devices, the color of the product may slightly differ from what is shown in the photographs or displayed on the screen of your device.
