Khlynov icon of Mother of God

This locally venerated copy of a miracle-working icon is one of the versions of the Icon of the Mother of God "Eleusa," No records of miracles wrought by the icon have come down to us. The reverse side of the icon bears the following inscription: "In the year 7192 (1684), in the month of August, this holy image was painted by Yaroslavl icon-painter Semyon Ivanov in Yaroslavl for the cathedral and apostolic church under Archpriest Aniky." The origin of the icon's name and its historical destiny are not clear. It may be assumed that the prototype of this iconographic type was a miraculous icon from the town of Khlynov (Vyatka). The whereabouts of the icon's original are unknown. There is no special feast day in honor of this icon.
