4-Part Russian Icon - Joy to All Who Sorrow Madonna & Selected Saints

The icon is depciting Miracleworking Madonna Joy to All Who Sorrow and selected saints: St Seraphim of Sarov, St. Demetrius of Thessaloniki, St. George of Lydda, St. Paraskevi the Friday and St. Ephemia. 

Mother of God, Joy of All Who Sorrow of Moscow is the name of a popular wonderworking Russian Orthodox icon. The icon dates to a miracle that occurred on October 24, 1688, when a woman named Euphymia received healing from sickness after obeying a voice telling her to find this icon and have the priest celebrate a prayer with blessing of water. The design of this icon depicts the Mother of God, depicted full-figured standing with her Son in Heaven and God the Father above her in the clouds. Along both sides of the icon, framing the Mother of God, depicted are many suppliants  asking for her intercession. The tenderness and kindness of a loving mother are evident in her face as She stands in paradise and yet among us.
