Small carved wood travel triptych icon: Our Lady of Chernihiv, St. Sergius of Radonezh & St. Nilus of Stolbensk

Small three-panel hand-carved wood icon - pilgrim's souvenir.  The center panel depicts Our Lady of Chernigov-Gethsemane, flanked by St. Sergius of Radonezh on the left and St. Nilus of Stolbensk on the right. Such items were carved by the monks throughout the 19th century to be retailed to the pilgrims coming to the monastery. 

Our Lady of Chernigov-Gethsemane is a miracleworking icon that became famous in 1662 when it saved a monastery near the town of Chernigov from the Tatar invaders.
