Like each icon showing Jesus, also this one is patterned after a medallion—"the first none human made picture". God took human body and transformed it. Jesus himself was the first icon when he was born. Christ shown in this icon is blessing the viewer with his right hand and in this left hand he is holding the Gospel with the quotation of love commandments. The icon shows Christ not only as a Lord of Heaven and Earth but also as Lord of Love. From the Greek, the word Pantocrator is most commonly translated as "Almightily" or "All-powerful." The icon of Christ Pantocrator is one of the most widely used religious images of Orthodox Christianity with the oldest known surviving icon from the 6th-7th century.
