‘Weep Not For Me, Mother’ is the equivalent of the Pieta in Eastern iconography. It represents the nude Christ, half-way deposited in the tomb. His eyes are closed, the head is tilted, and the wounded hands are arranged in the sign of the cross. The Virgin May holds up and tenderly embraces her Son. An anonymous icon from the late 17th or early 18th century. [Museum in Yekaterinburg]
