Lot 0046 Details

Exhibited Antique Russian Icon, "The 'Kazan' Mother of God". Oil on wood.

This icon takes its name from the city of Kazan, where in 1579 a young girl named Matrona saw Mary, the Mother of God in a dream. Mary told the girl to inform the authorities of a buried icon that they were to unearth. Matrona told her mother of the dream but was not believed until her mother saw a vision of the icon in her kitchen fire and heard a voice warning her to pay heed.

After the mother and daughter were not believed by the authorities, they decided to look for the icon on their own. Over three feet down, they unearthed the icon wrapped in a sleeve of red cloth. It was taken with honor to the Church of Saint Nicholas and then carried in a procession to the Annunciation Cathedral. According to tradition, two blind men were healed during the procession.

The Kazan icon became one of the two most venerated in Russia. It was credited with saving Moscow from invading Poles, among many other miracles.

Size: 12 x 10 in.
