The icon of the Savior Not Made by Hands is one of the few images of the Savior that is avowed and endlessly revered by both the Catholic and more orthodox Orthodox churches.
The icon of the Savior does not show torment or grief. She radiates peace, harmony and purity, as well as complete freedom from the manifestation of any feelings. The icon is most often cited as an illustration of the concept of “immaculate beauty”
