Description: AN ICON OF THE AKHTYRSKAYA MOTHER OF GOD WITH OKLAD Russian, 2nd half 19th century (icon), Russian, mid 18th century (oklad) Oil on wood panel. Here the Mother of God is shown praying before a miniature crucified Christ. The lower margin inscribed, 'The true representation and measure of the Akhtuirskaya icon of the Mother of God, which appeared in the year 1739, month of July, the 2nd Day.' The original icon appeared on July 2, 1739, when the priest Danill Vasiliev found it in the grass while mowing with a scythe. In 1751, the icon was declared miraculous by the Holy Synod and soon after Empress Elizabeth donated money to help erect a church to house the icon, which accounts for the addition of the Imperial Double-Headed Eagle incorporated into the lower margin. The entire image overlaid with a metal-gilt, repoussé and chased oklad decorated with rocailles and foliage. Two selected saints on the borders: the archangels Michael and Gabriel. 34.5 x 28.2 cm.
