The Unburnt Bush Icon of the Most Holy Theotokos

The Unburnt Bush icon of the Most Holy Theotokos painted by the unknown Russian master in the 1850s. This beautiful icon is one of the most vivid biblical images, based on the Old Testament miracle of a bush that “was burning, yet it was not consumed,” which was witnessed by Moses. It depicts the Theotokos holding her divine Son, encircled by an eight-pointed star that represents the bush and the flame embracing it. The composition also includes Moses, angels, archangels, and different visions of the prophets.
