Antique Russian icon Mother of God of Kazan XIX century, 32x26.5X2.5 cm.
Icon of the Kazan Mother of God, traditionally as small as the original. This is a variant of the "Odighitria" type which has the peculiarity of the representation of the Child in an upright position. The Russian icon is painted up to the chest and is characterized by a "cut" image perspective, which became popular in the 16th century.

The liberation of Moscow is linked to the intercession of the Kazan Mother of God since in 1612 Kusma Minin and Prince Dmitri Pogiarski brought with them the copy of the miraculous icon during the war against the Poles. Following this event, the icon was considered the protector of the Romanov dynasty and became one of the most important Russian relics. Origin: Central Russia
