Besedna icon of the blessed virgin Mary is so called because it depicted the mother of God and St. Nicholas of Myra conversing with the sacristan George (nicknamed URIs). This event occurred soon after the appearance of the Tikhvin icon of the blessed virgin Mary, in 1383, when the MostHoly mother of God Herself commanded sacristan George to say that over novostroiki in Her honor the temple of the Tikhvin put a wooden cross, not an iron. In place of this phenomenon, a chapel was built in the name of Sainted Nicholas the Wonderworker. The chapel burned several times (and for the first time in 1390 at the same time with the temple, which was the Tikhvin icon of the blessed virgin Mary). In 1515, was built a wooden Church and a monastery founded in honor of this Holy icon.

The iconography of the story Besedni icon accurately reflects "the Legend". Holy mother of God is depicted sitting on a felled (sometimes growing) the tree covered with leaves or flowers, "scarlet scepter" in his right hand.
