The “Treasure of the “Noble Village” of the Pelion Mountains of Thessaly, Northern Greece, is the Byzantine Museum. On a pleasant summer afternoon, we stopped by the village on a Kapogiannis tour with guide Kostoula. I went up winding stairs to see the Byzantine Museum. Constantinople.

“We have a marble sculpture icon of the Blessed Virgin Mary,” said the museum administrator. “St. Mark’s Basilica has a similar sculpture,” Theconographic style originated
from the 13th century. When I returned home, I researched. On the façade detail of St. Mark’s Basilica, Venice, is a relief of the Virgin Mary. A free download is available1.
The works of Theofilos Hatzimichael had a special exhibit during my visit. The 18-19 century heirlooms include: Greek and Russian icons; sacred Greek Orthodox vessels; clerical vestments; wood carvings of icons, frames, crosses, and picture frames; banners of saints; Holy Easter Friday epitaphs; paintings to Holy Land pilgrimages; and rare religious books.
