An 18th century copy of the miraculous icon of Mary venerated in the Augustinian church in Brno, Czech Republic.
According to legend, the original icon was painted by St Luke. It is referred to as the Pearl of Moravia and has been venerated in Brno since 1356.
In 1727 the Augustinians asked the Vatican for permission to solemnly crown the icon, which was finally granted in 1736. To commemorate this event, many copies were made of the icon for homes and churches.
Maria Santissima di Constantinopoli
The miraculous icon of Our Lady of Constantinople, the patroness of the Italian city and province of Bari.
According to legend the image was painted by St Luke and was kept in a church in Constantinople until 726, when the veneration of images was banned in the East. To escape the iconoclasm the miraculous portrait was sent to Italy for safekeeping, where it has been ever since.
