Icon of the Immaculate Conception by 


The original work is made of cut paper (with ink and paint additions). It is a depiction of the Blessed Virgin standing “clothed like the sun,” and with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head, as described in the biblical Book of Revelation as a part of the author’s elaborate vision of heavenly things. Images on this pattern were developed to illustrate the doctrine of Mary’s immaculate conception, i.e., that she was born without sin as the destined bearer of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
