This is the Icon of Saint John of Damascus who was eminent theologian, one of the greatest poets of church, iconographer and determined protector of Icons. Icon 'Three-handed', or Tricheirousa was made by him. The third hand is a symbol of John of Damascus's healing hand which was unfairly cut off. He prayed in front of the Icon of Saint Mary and she made his hand whole once again. Saint John of Damascus in gratitude to the Theotokos for the miraculous healing of his right hand he attached a silver hand to the icon in the lower left corner of the icon.
