Locally venerated Our Lady of Akhtyrsk is named after the town where it miraculously appeared in 1739 when the priest Daniil Vasiliev found it in the grass while mowing with a scythe. It depicts the Mother of God half-figured in an attitude of prayer with a smaller figure of crucified Christ shown to her right. Her feast day is July 2.
