Large Russian Icon - the Coronation of the Virgin Mary in brass revetment cover

The Coronation of the Virgin is is a popular subject among Eastern Orthodox icons, specifically in the Russian Orthodox Church after the 18th century. The New Testament Trinity comprised of Christ, accompanied by God the Father and the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove, is shown while placing a crown on the head of Mary as Queen of Heaven. The coronation of the Virgin Mary as the Queen of Heaven, according to the Church doctrine, is one of the episodes included in the cycle of the Ascension of the Mother of God and the last episode of Her life, which took place immediately after the Ascension. The coronation of the Virgin Mary is celebrated by the Catholic Church on August 22. In Orthodoxy, there is only the feast of the Dormition of the Virgin Mary.
