Icon of the Savior Made Without Hands

The Savior Made Without Hands, or the Holy Mandylion, is one of the oldest Jesus Christ icons with an interesting history. According to the legend, it was not painted by a human hand but was miraculously imprinted on a piece of cloth when the Lord wiped His face with the towel. The earliest surviving image of this type is the 12-century icon of the Savior Made Without Hands, which is now kept in the State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow.
