Velvet backing.The Kazan image of All-holy Our Lady is the most revered and honored of all icons in Russia. One may find its image in every orthodox temple. Experts say the original image of Our Lady of Kazan originates in the 13th century. The icon a painting on wood is said to have originally come from Constantinople. In 1209 the Tartars besieged the city and made it the residence of the Khan. During this period there is no mention to be found about the icon. It is not until after the liberation of Kazan that the icon is again found mentioned on historical records. In 1579 a nine-year-old girl by the name of Matrona whose parents' house burned down during the 1579 fire in Kazan saw in a dream the image of the Blessed Virgin Mary and heard a voice commanding her to retrieve a holy Icon hidden in the ashes of the burned house. The holy Icon was discovered wrapped in an old cloth under the stove where it was buried most likely during the rule of the Tartars when Christians were forced to conceal their faith. The holy Icon was triumphantly transported to the nearest church the Church of St. Nicholas and later to the Cathedral of the Annunciation where it received renown for curing the blind. A copy was made of the Icon and sent to the tsar Ivan the Terrible. In honor of its arrival a special feast day was established on the 21st of July.
