"...Virgin of Vladimir (Vladimirskaya Theotokos). According to legend, it was painted by the Apostle Luke. He wrote of one of the four Gospels, the Biblical stories of Jesus’ life. Because Luke knew Mary, Jesus’ mother, this icon is supposed to show what she really looked like. Also, according to tradition, this icon is connected to a miracle.
