ITEM DESCRIPTION:  This is a beautiful Russian icon on a wood panel, made ca. 1880. It depicts the Mother of God "The Joy of All Who Sorrow" with coins.  It is a super good example of this miracle icon.  It shows the Mother of God in the center with suffering humans gathered around her, with angels among them.  This icon is different from other icons with this image because it has coins stuck here and there. This is based on a miracle that occurred in a village in St. Petersburg, Russia, in 1888. The image of the "Joy of All Who Suffer" was hanging in a chapel that was struck by lightening. The icon was found face down on the floor and when turned over, the image was found to have become fresh and clear and coins from the alms box were sticking to its surface. Previously the icon was dark and obscure--its renewal was considered as a sign of heaven. Please see all photos for details.
