A half-length depiction of the Virgin with raised hands and Christ-Emmanuel on her chest. Emmanuel means "God with us" in Hebrew and is the name used by the prophet Isaiah when writing of the coming Messiah. This type of Virgin was well-known in Byzantium and common in early Russia, especially in Novgorod where a twelfth-century Icon of this type was kept, considered to be the city's holiest treasure and its protection. A legend tells that the Novgorod Icon miraculously saved the city when the men of Suzdal were besieging it in 1169. In Russian Iconostases a composition of the Virgin of the Sign occupied the central position in the prophets row as a visual expression of the prophecies about the birth of Christ.
