Rare icon Our Lady of the Don
Our Lady of the Don is a 14th-century Eleusa icon representing Virgin Mary with the infant Jesus Christ. The icon, currently held in Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow, displays an Eleusa composition. The origins of the icon and the exact date of its creation are contested. It is believed to be painted by Theophanes the Greek c. 1382-1395. The monastery book of Donskoy Monastery states that Our Lady of the Don was a gift from Don Cossacks to Dmitry Donskoy the day before Battle of Kulikovo (1380)
