The Madonna of Tichvin icon is one of the most revered miraculous images in Russia.
The most important detail is in Christ's gesture: he is blessing the Mother with with his right hand. The figures of Christ and the Virgin are highly detached, the Holy Mother of God is always represented with the right hand pointing at Child Jesus who sits on her left hand, as if Our Lady is telling men that the true way is the one towards Christ. This icon is like a guide to God and to eternal Salvation.
