The icon of our Lady of the Vine is an excellent example of ecclesiastical iconography, where the Virgin is depicted in white instead of red veil. This fact is extremely rare and is a proof of the protection of the Virgin Mary on the island of Lemnos, where the icon is located in a metochi of the Monastery of Simonos Petras.
