I'm driving myself crazy with this - I can picture the icon but I can't think of the name to look it up.

It has the Virgin in foreground and she is standing in front of a river. In the background (way in the background, they are very small) are two men walking in some hills or mountains.

I'd appreciate it if anyone could help me!

Thanks,

Kelly

I think this is an Icon of Pühtitsa Theotokos.
The legend tells that shepherds saw Holy Virgin on the hill near the spring in Kuremäe (Estonia) and later found a holy icon in the same place.

The only Russian Orthodox cloister in Estonia was established in this holy place.

I see there is a problem with the name. I copied it from Website because it is to be written with "Umlaut"(two points above the letter) and I don't have this sign on my computer. So the icon is called Puhtitsa (with 2 points above "u") Theotokos. And the place is called Kuremae (with 2 points above "a"). Here you can get the name written correctly: http://www.aviastar.org/travel/gallery.php?dir=eesti/kuremae
