Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe

Here's the icon of Our Lady of Guadalupe that is venerated in Casa Andrew.

She is the Patroness of the Americas. The icon is made in Greece. Don't ask me what the Greeks are doing with a Catholic icon.

that's gorgeous. Did you purchase it from a website?

I've heard that some Byzantine Catholics venerate Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe as if it were an 'icon not made by hands', or Acheiropoietos

Hey Carolina, that old thing has been laying around for a while now.

Arch, technically most of the icons today are acheiropoietos, cos they're made by machines =)) Haha.

Nice one! I think it looks Russian rather than Greek (in terms of style).
