    Christ "Not Made With Hands" or "The Holy Napkin" Orthodox Icon


    Uncircumscribed Word of the Father.  As we behold the victorious image of Your true incarnation, Not made by hands, But divinely wrought in Your ineffable and divine dispensation towards us, We honor it with veneration!

    This common depiction of the Savior is one of the earliest known in the Orthodox church and stems from the tradition of Agbar, the ruler of Edessa, being healed of leprosy when a cloth was brought to him which had the image of the Savior's face portrayed on it.
