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 July 21, 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 taking of the city, a large part of it was razed to the ground by a fire. Among others, the house of the Onuchin family was 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 once located. The icon was found buried deeply in the ground. That same year, in the place where the icon was found, Tsar Ivan IV founded the monastery of the Virgin Mary 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 can be found in Elokhovsky Cathedral in Moscow and Vladimirsky Cathedral in Sam Petersburg. Traditionally in Russia it is used to give this icon to the newlyweds.
