I thought readers might like to learn about the history and miraculous safe keeping of the first Divine Mercy image and it's eventual restoration which occurred in 2003.
After its full restoration, this image was made available to the public and is now widely circulated through printed reproductions.

Below are before and after photo from their site.
Have a wonderful Easter season!
The first Icon of Divine Mercy, more posts. Link
The photo on the left is of a recently purchased, small booklet.
It offers a thoughtful analysis of this image as an icon and sacred art. It is the best that I've found on this topic to date.
