The is the Holy Icon of the Most Holy Theotokos "Tricherousa". Three hands - the third hand was placed on the icon as offer for the great miracle the Most Holy Theotokos worked.

When the right hand of St. John of Damscus was cut by the Calife - it was heald the same night through a miracle.

MOST HOLY THEOTOKOS SAVE US!
