The image of the Protection of the Most Holy Theotokos. Mid-third quarter of the 19th century.

The image of the Protection of the Most Holy Theotokos. Midthird quarter of the 19th century. Possibly Vetka. The image, especially revered in Rus`, is a centric, Novgorod composition, in which the memory of getting rid of the Slavic raid on Constantinople in the 7th century is recorded. Then the weekly veneration of the protection of the Mother of God, which grew into a religious procession, saved the city. This solemnly fixes the upper case of the icon. In the lower one, the sweet singer Roman before the emperor and the queen sings hosanna to the Mother of God and Her intercession. In the right stamp, behind the pillar - the scene of the prophetic visitation of Roman by the Mother of God. Clean and precise writing on gold depicts the outline of a temple with five domes, with a bell tower and an annex at the top. The catchy pictorial coloring, including the upcoming ones (St. Nicholas, Evdokia, Agripina and the Archangel Radeniya) is similar to the manner of the Vetka masters of the middle third quarter of the 19th century.
