Title: New Icon of the Grand Duchesses
Post by: BobAtchison on August 29, 2012, 11:09:08 AM
Does anyone know where the original of this icon came from?  I had my friend Zefir paint me a copy.  He made a few changes to the original for me.  I added the Virgin of the Sign (the specific icon they were given in Pskov a few months before the Revolution)  and angels to the top, as well as added the engraved border.  Someone told me they saw this ikon in Yekaterinburg.  I found the image I used to copy this on the web.  It seems to have been around for a while, but I never saw it until a month or so ago. - Bob

Can't say that I know where it came from, but it certainly is lovely..

I have no idea where it comes from either, but I agree, it is very lovely...
