The Kursk Root Icon of Our Lady of the Sign was discovered by a hunter at the foot of a tree on the riverbanks of the Skal River just outside the city of Kursk in the year 1295. No sooner had the hunter picked up the icon than there immediately gushed forth an abundant spring of fresh water. Throughout the years to come the icon traveled to many cities and brought forth many more miracles. As a result many monasteries and cathedrals have been built in dedication to the Kursk Root Icon of Our Lady of the Sign. The holy icon has brought consolation to hundreds of thousands of people who have experienced trials and tribulations of different wars and battles through out all the Russian land and beyond. The Kursk Root Icon now finds its permanent home in the Russian Orthodox Church outside Russias Synod cathedral in New York City.

    I just received this medallion yesterday. I am thrilled! It is just so beautiful. Now I can have the Most Holy Theotokos near my heart at all times.
    I have admired the work of Gallery Byzantium for a couple of years now, and was finally able to make a purchase, and believe me, it won’t be my last. The workmanship of this piece is amazing down to every small detail. I can’t wait to purchase another piece!
