|Icon "Triumph of the Mother of God"|
The icon was painted on believers' donations to "bless the Christ-loving soldiers of Far Russia" on the instruction by a monk, former sailor from Sevastopol, who was granted a vision of the Mother of God and Her prophecy in December 1903, on the eve of the Russo-Japanese War. Our Lady ordered to bring the icon to Port Arthur as a premise for Russian victory.
In May 1904 the icon was brought to Vladivostok but against the will of the Mother of God only its copies were sent to Port Arthur but in vain. When, finally, a participant in the Russo-Turkish War of 1877 — 1888 N. N. Fedorov volunteered to take the icon to Port Arthur, it was too late: twice he was prevented by weather conditions and his third attempt was a failure because Port Arthur surrendered. The icon was brought back to Vladivostok.
