Traveling Icon "The Seven Arrows"
The image of the Virgin with arrows alarming the uninitiated. But the meaning of the arrows is not at all in belligerence. They symbolize the pain and grief posed by the mother of Christ in earthly life. The number of arrows is not randomly chosen - the number seven in Orthodoxy is considered a symbol of completeness and integrity. They mean that Our Lady drank a cup of earthly grief completely.
