Commissioned by:

Church of the Resurrection, Greenwood, SC

This icon is based on one dated in the 16th century from the Cretan School now in Venice. Mary's hair is visible and the scene represents the time after the Resurrection but before Christ has "ascended to the Father" (John 20:17). Christ gestures to a kneeling Mary Magdalene who is dressed in red. In the background is the tomb and discarded linens, recalling the Nativity scene with the swaddling clothes.
