Quality Materials Information

Photography All photography is shot by a commercial photographer. The prints are therefore, first generation prints, suitable for framing. This applies to these categories: $4.00 notecards and all larger matted and/or framed photos. They are the truest color matching the original icons. Some less expensive cards and a few of the smaller matted pictures are second generation prints made by a commercial printer's shop.

Matting The photgraphs are all matted by hand. The notecards are assembled individually by hand. Some images have two colors of matting, designated with a (dm) in the code number indicating that they are double matted.

Frames Metal frames are heavy metal of high quality. Each image is matted and framed by hand. Wood frames are of single grain, solid wood.

Plaques The plaques are laminated over high quality photographs in a slightly matte finish.

Mary The Immaculate Conception
Mary Immaculate has a unique place in salvation history and is honored under this title. The East names this mystery as, the Conception by St. Anne of the Theotokos. Mary's conception is depicted in the small icon within the icon, showing Sts. Joachim and Anne, her parents, embracing before the marriage bed. Here, she stands with her hands in the position of woman of prayer, intercessor at Pentecost, with the apostles and the gathered church. She wears the blue veil and robe that is traditionally used by the West, though there are early icons of her in the East wearing blue as well. Her tunic is red, showing her solidarity with humanity. She is one of us, and one for us. The letters, MP ӨY in Greek denote, Mary Mother of God.
