According to legend, Our Lady Donskaja is the icon, which got its name thank to Dmitriy Donskoy, who took it with himself to the Kulikovskaja battle, where the greatest victory over the tatars was gained. In Kolomna Dmitriy Donskoy mustered the troops before going to the Don and, coming back as the conqueror, ordered to paint the Uspenskiy Cathedral with frescos here. Nowadays it considers more authentic, that at the same time with painting the Cathedral, like in memory of the great victory, that happy image of Our Lady was painted and in due course got the name Donskaja. In modern science there are opinions about artist, who could create this icon. It could possibly be Pheophan Grek, a well-known Byzantine by birth, who is considered to be working in Kolomna in the90s of 16c. But more probadly, the author of Our Lady Donskaja was the one of the great Byzantines russian apprentices.
There are Our Lady and Jesus Baby, sitting at her right hand in the icon. Her sight, full of love, is fixed on her son but the world and touches softly with his clothes. The Baby snuggles his cheek to his Mother, he also puts his little feet at Mothers hand with lively and affecting gesture. He has a scroll in his left hand, like a sign of doctrine he has taken. The Baby doesnt put his right hand around his Mother but raises it to her with a blessing gesture.
