The story of the Mandylion originates from a sixth-century Byzantine legend. King Abgar of Edessa falls deathly ill and requests that Christ heal his sickness. Christ instead sends a messenger with a cloth bearing an impression of his face.
When pressed upon the Kings face, the cloth cures the King. Similar miraculous images in existence include the Cloth of Saint Veronica and the Shroud of Turin.
On the lower layer of this Mandylion , the artist painted Christ on a wood panel with varying hues black, gold, and ochre. Jesus makes eye contact, an unspoken promise to heal the wounded.The upper layer around takes the form of a silver oklad, or revetment, placed over the portrait. Crown around of the image Christs face suggest a halo or divine spirit shining outwards. Combined, this is a figure at once nearly tangible yet as ethereal as can be expected from a divine figure.
