On September 6, a prayer was held in the Holy Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius on the occasion of the consecration of the relief icon of the Mother of God. It will be transferred to the church, working at the boarding school for deaf-blind children.
The image of the Mother of God "Cyprus" is made in high relief art by the sculptor Oleg Zon in the framework of the See the ICON project, which is supported by the Deaf-blind Support Foundation So-edinenie (Connection).
The icon is accessible to a wide range of parishioners, and especially for those whose abilities are limited: blind, visually impaired and deafblind.
The icon was already appreciated by Marta and Alexey Lyubimov - employees of the Institute of Correctional Pedagogics of the Russian Academy of Sciences, tiflopedagogs, orientation and mobility specialists. They noted that the relief created by the author of the icon is very convenient for perception by blind, visually impaired and deafblind people.
The consecrated icon was given to the church the Church of the Apparition of the Mother of God to St. Sergius of Radonezh at the Sergiev Posad at the boarding school for the deaf children and young disabled people.
See the ICON project allows to expand the boundaries for people with visual disabilities: the icons can be touched by hands, which is important for people with disabilities.
The icon has a relief wooden base, it is made in contrasting colors to facilitate the perception for the visually impaired.
In 2016 the first tactile icon created with the support of the Deaf-blind Support Foundation So-edinenie (Connection) was transferred to the Cathedral of Christ the Savior. Then Oleg Zon created a unique icon, which is an image of the Mother of God with the blessing of the Savior. Since 2014, in total, the artist has transferred 22 tactile icons to the Russian churches.
