This image of the Virgin is linked to the apparition to Saint Andrew the Fool in Christ, and is typically Russian. It is said that one day Saint Andrew was praying for salvation against the invasion of a horde of barbarians. Before Father Andrea miraculously appeared the Virgin, who took off the veil, or maphorion, and spread it over the faithful as a symbol of protection. That same night the barbarians were dispersed.
