Attractive Central Russian icon depicting the Mother of God of Tenderness ( Eleousa in Greek) of Feodorosk. This type goes back on the 12th century byzantine Eleousa icon and is credited with helping the Russians conquering the Swedes by Poltava in 1709.
The Virgin Mother and the Christ child are putting their cheeks against each other. The Christ child shows one bare leg, typically for this Eleousa variant.
This icon has been given for a marriage. It is in extremely good state of preservation and painted on silver. The expression of the face of the Virgin is very attractive and touches the spectator in his soul.
