Mother of God "Burning Bush" or "Unburnt Bush" Orthodox Icon
This icon is based on the Old Testament miracle in which Moses witnessed the burning bush. In this miracle the bush was burning, yet not consumed and it is from this that the Orthodox church sees a typology of the Mother of God. This idea follows in that the Mother of God gave birth to the Savior, yet remained a virgin. The diamonds in this icon are pictured as red and green, red representing the fire and green the bush.
The miracle that Moses witnessed on Sinai in the burning bush foretold your virginal childbearing, O pure Mother.
We the faithful cry to you: Rejoice, O truly living bush!
Rejoice, O holy mountain!
Rejoice, O sanctified expanse and most holy Theotokos!
