This icon is one of the great treasures of the New Valaam Monastery in Finland. The wonderworking icon features the Theotokos standing on a cloud, holding Christ, in the Hodegetria ("she who shows the way") style.

The icon was painted at Valaam Monastery in Russia in a naturalistic style that was popular in the late 19th century. It survived the two World Wars and was taken to Finland for safe-keeping, where it remains today. In 1987, the Church of Finland established its feast day on August 7.

    Bought this icon twice and both times the icon peeled, held it back together with clear tape. Besides that, I love this icon ----- Legacy Icons Response: Please contact customer support for a replacement!

    Lovely icon though very dully finished, not as high a gold as in the sample photos. Also, promised discount not applied. Techno/behemoth umbrella under which Legacy Icons operates makes false promises Legacy Icon does not keep. That's a problem, amigos.

    I asked Legacy to make this icon into a diptych, along with thw Sinai Chrost icon. Stunning, I pray before it daily... a piece of Valaam in my house!
