Christ Pantokrator

In medieval iconography Pantokrator (Almighty) is one of Christ's many attributes.

The oldest representation in St. Catherine's Monastery, Sinai. 
Note the two different facial expressions which suggest Christ double nature: 
human and divine.

Church of Daphni Monastery (12th c.)
