In Russia the icon of Our Lady of the Sign is called "Znamenie". The
icon shows Mary, the Mother of God with her arms outstretched in an
attitude of prayer. This position of prayer is called Orans and the
image of the Mother of God in this position is sometimes called the
"Oranta". In her breast is a circular medallion with the Christ child
blessing the world. The icon originated in Byzantium and was considered a
talisman of the Imperial throne there and in Russia.
