Russian Icon - Saint Nicholas of Mozhaisk in brass revetment cover

In Russia, Saint Nicholas the Wonderworker is often shown as Holy Hierarch Nicholas of Mozhaysk, depicting a full-length Nicholas with a sword in his right hand and a city in his left. According to the legend, during the 14th-century siege of Mozhaysk city by Mongols, the residents prayed to Saint Nicholas, who announced himself as a colossal figure holding a sword in his right hand and the city of Mozhaisk in the palm of his left hand. After seeing such a frightful vision, the Mongols retreated. The grateful citizen erected a wooden monument to Saint Nicholas as he was seen during his announcement.
