The miraculous icon of Virgin Mary Valaam, painted on linden wood, is one of the greatest treasures of the Monastery of New Valaam in Heinavasi, Finland. The icon was painted in 1878 by Fr. Alypios and depicts Virgin Mary looking down, standing on a cloud, wearing a red mantle. In her left hand she holds the Lord Jesus Christ, who blesses with His right hand and with His left hand holds an orb with a cross to show that He is the Creator of the world and Lord of all. Panagia Valaam is honored on August 7.
