Handmade Byzantine Icon of Saint Veronica.
Saint Veronica came from the city of Paneada.
According to the Gospels of Matthew, Luke and Mark, Saint Veronica suffered from a hemorrhage, which was healed by Jesus Christ. To please the Lord, Saint Veronica created a statue in His honor for the faithful to worship. According to tradition, a plant with healing properties grew at its base.
In addition, Saint Veronica is said to have wiped the face of Jesus Christ with a handkerchief, as He headed towards Calvary, and His face was imprinted on it. The fabric became known as "Veronica's Handkerchief".
