This regal holy medal features Theotokos (the Mother of God) with Archangel Gabriel on the opposite side Theotokos is another name for the Virgin Mary, and she also represents Wisdom in the Orthodox Church. This is a rare and beautiful medal. It's called Wisdom's Seat because the Madonna is shown in her iconic role as the Seat of Wisdom holding the Christ Child. The image is very similar to the Icon of Mary and the Child Jesus in the Hagia Sophia pictured below. The original medal is from the 1940's and has been recast in bronze and dipped in gold leaf to create this piece.
The reverse side of the medal depicts the Archangel Gabriel, who is known as the Messenger of the God. He works closely with mankind and is the patron saint of communication workers. He is also the angel of strength and protection and awaits to help you facilitate communication - especially with children, parents, teachers, family and friends. It was Gabriel who visited Mary and asked Her if She would carry the Christ Child and be His mother.
