Painted at the very beginning of 2022, this sacred icon of the Mother of God is based on the russian traditional 14th-century Eleusa icon representing Virgin Mary with the infant Jesus Christ, painted by Theophanes the Greek. I re-visited the drawing following two other icons of Our Lady of the Don that I love: the Donskaya Mother of God from Moscow, second half of the 16th century, https://www.sothebys.com/en/auctions/ecatalogue/2015/russian-works-art-faberge-icons-l15116/lot.502.html  and the Donksaya Mother of God from the Old Believers.https://www.ruicon.ru/arts-new/icons/1x1-dtl/kalendar/bogomater_donskaya_s_prp_kirillom_belozerskim_na_pole/?page_20=992&p_f_11_temp_id=1&p_f_11_75=1&ref-cat=
