Unknown Forms of Virgin Mary
The War Museum
Rizari 2, Athens
12 - 17 May 2022
Hagiography Exhibition by Eleni Antonakaki
There are hundreds of names given to the Virgin Mary. So far, it is estimated that there are more than 500. Some are more or less known, while others are unknown to the general public.
These names are usually associated with the place or the way an icon was found, while others are taken from hymns as well as from the way each icon has been hagiographed.
Some of the most accurate and lesser-known depictions of the Virgin Mary were painted by the Hagiographer, Eleni Antonakaki.
It is an admirable effort, since very few hagiographers have “dared” to try the “off the beaten path” of the Orthodox hagiography.
