Lot 0946
A FINE RUSSIAN ICON OF THE TOLGA MOTHER OF GOD, 19TH CENTURY. The prototype for this image first appeared to Bishop Prokhoriy in the year 1314 along the banks of the Tolga River. It appeared miraculously upon a pillar of light and later was found hanging in the branches of a nearby tree. Soon a church was built to show the icon and it began to exude fragrant oil (myrrh) that healed many who annointed themselves. The gilt inscription on the lower margin includes a brief narrative regarding this famous miracle work icon. The overall style is in keeping with the Old or Traditional geography. A beautiful tenderness variant of very high quality. 14 inches x 12 inches (35.6 x 30.5 cm).
