ABC Wednesday # I #. Icon - Εικόνα


From 1886 is built the church of Virgin Mary in the small village Deleria, little outside from Larissa. Above the southern entry is found this icon of Virgin Mary as it is today. Beginnings 1900 had placed a icon of Mother of Christ, which at the duration of B World War was disappearred. Occasionally were placed other two icons what were destroyed! This icon is a splendid mosaic from colourful marble, and in certain points has been placed talmi-gold! We hope that this icon will bear in the time as the church. In the down part above in the white marble exist engraved date 1886 and a cross! -
Από το 1886 είναι κτισμένη η εκκλησία της Παναγίας στο μικρό χωριό Δελέρια, λίγο έξω από την Λάρισα. Πάνω από την νότια είσοδο ευρίσκεται αυτή η εικόνα της Παναγίας όπως είναι σήμερα. Αρχές του 1900 είχαν τοποθετήσει μια εικόνα της Μητέρας του Χριστού, η οποία κατά την διάρκεια του Β’ World War εξαφανίστηκε. Κατά καιρούς τοποθετήθηκαν άλλες δυο εικόνες οι οποίες καταστράφηκαν! Αυτή η εικόνα είναι ένα υπέροχο ψηφιδωτό από χρωματιστό μάρμαρο , και σε κάποια σημεία έχουν τοποθετηθεί talmi-gold!Ελπίζουμε πως αυτή η εικόνα θα αντέξει στον χρόνο όσο και η εκκλησία. Στο κάτω μέρος πάνω στο λευκό μάρμαρο υπάρχει χαραγμένη η ημερομηνία 1886 και ένας σταυρός!
