The Creator of Souls Chrismon

        Little Naked Bodies are the symbols of the souls of men, and are seen in pictures of St. Michael and when he is represented as the Introductor of souls. They are also placed in the hand which symbolizes God the Father.
       Before the twelfth century there were no portraits of God the Father, and the symbol used to indicate his presence was a hand issuing from the clouds.
