Description: A RARE ICON SHOWING THE KOZELSHCHANSKAYA MOTHER OF GOD Russian, after 1881, dated 1898 Oil on wood panel. The Kozelshchanskaya icon of the Mother of God is a waist-length image of the Theotokos with the Divine Child in the arms. The Child is shown holding a cross in his right hand and half-sitting on the Theotokos's lap. To the right on the table is a jar with a little spoon. They are interpreted in two ways as the celebration of the Eucharist and an illustration of the joy the Mother of God delivers to the world. The miraculous image of the Kozelshchanskaya (Kozelshchinskaya) Mother of God was a family sanctity in the house of Count Kapnist at their Kozelshchino estate, Poltavskaya gubernia, from which it got its name. On the reverse Cyrillic inscription, dated '1898'. Minimally restored. 26.7 x 22.6 cm.
