Hand painted icon, reproduction of Our Lady of Kazan. This icon is one of the largest and most revered in Russia. It was found on 21 July 1579, immediately after the capture of the city by Ivan IV the terrible. The feast of the icon is celebrated on this very day. The day before the capture of the city, much of it was burned to the ground. Among others, the house of the Onuchin family was also destroyed. Matrena Onichin, an 8-year-old girl, then had a vision of the Virgin in which she was ordered to look for her icon in the place where the house was previously. The icon was found buried deep in the ground. In that same year, in the place where the icon was found, Tsar Ivan IV founded the monastery dedicated to the Virgin and Matrena became a nun in that monastery. The icon became famous for many miracles, especially for healing the blind. Russian soldiers were protected by the icon twice: against the Poles in 1612 and during the siege of Leningrad in 1941. The two most famous copies of the kazan icon are found in Elokhovsky Cathedral in Moscow and Vladimirsky Cathedral in Sam Petersburg. Traditionally in Russia it is customary to give this icon to the newlyweds.
