Acheiropoieta is Greek for ‘not made by (human) hand’ and such icons are said to have come into existence miraculously or are versions of a miraculously created original archetype. During the early ministry of Jesus Christ, Abgar – ruler of the Syrian City of Edressa – was afflicted by leprosy. Christ the Saviour asked for water and a towel. He wiped his face with a towel, and on it was his divine image. Christ sent the towel to Abgar and, on receiving it, began to heal and was cured. The image is a representation by the miraculous event or can be seen as representation of the holy shroud.
