Theotokos " Container of the Uncontainable" icon
Orthodox icon of the Most Holy Theotokos " Container of the Uncontainable", second half of 13 cent., Istanbul.
"Present below completely and above nowise absent was the uncircumscribable Logos. For it was no migration through space, but divine condescension that had taken place, and childbirth from a God-possessed Virgin who hears this that follows:
Rejoice, the uncontainable God’s container.
Rejoice, the magnificent mystery’s doorway........"
(From the 3rd Stanza of the Salutations of our Most Holy and Ever-Virgin Theotokos)
