In Hodigitria, the Mother of God is gently turned to the right, with Jesus sitting on her left forearm. It also performs the "Hodigitria" gesture with the right hand. Jesus makes a gesture of blessing with his right hand, while in the left he holds a scroll of papyrus. His feet, visible from underneath the tunic, fall down, raising the right knee only slightly. A copy of this icon was brought to the residence of the tsar in the 17th century by Archimandrite Pachomiusz, who built a separate chapel for her. Since then, the icon, made by monks in a monastery in the Atos mountains associated with the Iwiron monastery, has become very popular in Russia.
