Antique Icon of the Mother of God “Of the Three Hands”


Antique icon of the Mother of God “Of the Three Hands” from the Hilandar Monastery on Mount Athos in Greece. It is the most important and famous wonderworking icon of the Serbian Orthodox Church. This beautiful icon depicting the Mother of God with Christ Child (The Panagia Hodegetria) is distinguished by the “third” silver hand in the bottom left corner. According to the legend, this hand was attached by St. John Damascene after his own cut-off hand was miraculously restored by the Theotokos.
