An elegant diptych

A diptych of Christ and the Virgin Mary (of the image of Kazan) is a traditional wedding
present. Some traditions hold it is traditional gift
from the groom's parents as the new couple at the "Crowning" (Eastern term for wedding) are starting a "new kingdom." The blessing of the wedding icons usually takes place 40 days before the wedding and is used in the wedding. A wedding icon
set is sometimes handed down from generation to generation.
Also the icons can be the central icons of a home's icon corner or home altar. Other icons are added to this corner.
Great for travel
and home display. Perfect wedding gift.
Color of leatherette case may vary.
