The “Mater Amabilis” is a copy of an icon written by Cecilia Lawrence (Theophilia) who has beautifully expressed the intimacy and love between the Blessed Mother and her Child Jesus.
The Letters “MP” and “OY” at the top of the image indicate “Mother of God”; “IX” means Jesus Christ. The bars over the initials mean that they are an abbreviation.
Image is bonded to an aluminum plate for beauty and durability; no glass is required. Frame is made of 1″ wide mahogany wood in our Mater Dei Imports workshop; overall size of framed piece is 11 1/2″ x 9 1/2″. Saw tooth hanger is attached to back for hanging.
Share the joy of motherhood with a new mother, mother-to-be, or any with an affection for the Blessed Mother.
