Icon " Miraculous appearance of the Mother of God and St. Nicholas to sexton George (Yurysh)"Russia; the end of XIX century .;Wood, oil, gilding, cold enamel;36x30 cmThe icon tells about the miraculous appearance of the Mother of God and St. Nicholas to sexton George (Yurysh). They asked the sexton not to place an iron cross atop the church roof and put a wooden cross instead. People didn’t believe the sexton and mounted an iron cross, but it fell down on the ground. A new cross was made of a tree branch upon which had sat the Mother of God. The wooden Church of the Dormition of the Theotokos, erected on the site of the last appearance of the icon, burnt three times but the icon remained intact. In the foreground the Mother of God is depicted sitting on a stump. She has a staff in her right hand, and her left hand is reached out to the kneeling George. Behind him Nicholas is depicted in full growth. Behind Nicholas there is a master maker of the cross, who was in the basis for the legend. In the background there are the chapel and the church, and at the top - the Tikhvin icon of the Virgin with the Child Jesus. Fields and corners are decorated with icons floral ornaments, in the technique of cold enamels.
