The Dormition of the Theotokos is a Great Feast of the Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox and Eastern Catholic Churches which commemorates the "falling asleep" or death of the Theotokos (Mary, the mother of Jesus), and her bodily resurrection before being taken up into heaven. It is celebrated on August 15.The Dormition tradition is associated with various places, most notably with Jerusalem, which contains Mary's Tomb and the Basilica of the Dormition, and Ephesus, which contains the House of the Virgin Mary, and also with Constantinople. The first four Christian centuries are silent regarding the end of the Virgin Mary's life, though it is asserted, without surviving documentation, that the feast of the Dormition was being observed in Jerusalem shortly after the Council of Ephesus.The village of Palekh has been a center of icon painting since the 17th century. Influenced by the tradition of the Stroganov Style and the fresco and icon painting in the towns of the upper Volga area, the best artists of Palekh developed the style known today as the ‘Palekh Style’.Russian Tsars favored Palekh icons because of the preservation of old Russian style characterized by fine, miniature, painting of architectural backdrops and landscapes, high quality workmanship and the heightened detail executed with narrative motifs.
