The icon shows the Mother of God with the child on her right arm. It corresponds to the type of umilenie, which was developed in Byzantium in the 11th century. The Blessed Mother turns lovingly to the child. A special feature of Feodorovskaya is the bare leg of the Christ child. Icon remembrance day: March 14th and August 16th.

 

On August 16, 1239 the miraculous icon of Our Lady appeared to Prince Vasily von Kostroma during the hunt. The icon derives its name from the church of St. Feodor Stratilates in Kostroma. In front of the icon of the Mother of God of Feodor, Maria Ivanovna blessed her son Michael Feodorowitsch on March 14, 1613, whereby she consented that he ascend the throne. The Dormant Mary Cathedral of the Feodorovsky Monastery is located in the area of Nizhny Novgorod (now Gorky). Among the icons of the cathedral in the Winter Palace of Petersburg was a Mother of God Feodorovskaya, who was highly venerated by the Russian tsars.

 

Very nice, fine painting.
