Abstract

A particular type of icon, known in all oriental Christendom (orthodoxe world), shows the Holy Mother having three hands. On the most ancient copies, the third hand is in silver. The legend which accompanies this icon, of Serbian origin, could well be a relic of Celtic mythology in the Balkans.
