The Widest Embrace of All

In the world of Eastern Orthodox Christianity the Holy Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus, is the comfort of every afflicted and persecuted person in this vain world of injustice and despair.

I have created an embroidery on card to honour the Platytera (which means, "the widest embrace of all").

On the Greek island of Tinos on August 15 a joyful celebration takes on an official character with the Greek political and presidential leadership participating in the festivities.

This artwork will be granted as a gift to His Beatitude Christodoulos, Archbishop of Athens and all Greece.
