Russian Icon - Saint Venerable Tikhon, Miraclevorker of Kaluga

Saint Tikhon of Kaluga († 16 June 1492) was a Russian abbot and saint who grew up in Moscow and became a monk as a young man. He then moved to a forest near Medin in Kaluga, living in the hollow of an oak tree. It was on that spot that he founded (and became the first abbot of) a monastery, dedicated to the Dormition of the Mother of God (and then to Tikhon himself after his death). This icon was produced at the St. Tikhon's Monastery to be sold to incoming pilgrims who were coming to venerate relics of St. Tikhon.
