Pantanassa means «Queen of All», is one of the traditional epithets of the Virgin Mary in Greek Orthodoxy. The icon of Theotokos Pantanassa, made according ​​to the original icon, which is located at the Holy Great Monastery of Vatopedi. This miraculous icon is portable of the 17th century and is located on the left wing of the north-eastern column of the Catholikon of the Vatopedi Monastery.

The first record of the icon’s miraculous powers concerns a young man from Cyprus. When he entered into the church there was a glowing light radiating from the face of Virgin Mary  and an invisible power pushed the young man down to the ground. When he recovered from his fall, he began to weep and confessed that he didn’t believe and was a participant in the black arts. He changed his life and became an Orthodox Christian.
