This image is considered to be the oldest known icon and also the oldest known portrait of Jesus.
The image has been referred to in many ways over the centuries.
In Greek, it is called the "Achieropoietos," meaning
"Not Made by Human Hands".
The legend is linked by some to the Shroud of Turin
and by others to Veronica's Veil.
This icon shows only the head of Jesus, no neck,
shoulders or body, surrounded by a halo.
The halo has always been used in icons as the symbol for sanctity.
The images are high quality offset print with
golden paint ornaments printed over wood.
