It is the Mother of God of Akhtyrsk (Kharkov region). It was found by the priest of the Pokrov church on July 2, 1739. Its original version is in San Francisco, according to the Russian Wikipedia.

http://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%90%D1%85%D1%82%D1%8B%D1%80%D1%81%D0%BA%D0%B0%D1%8F_%D0%B8%D0%BA%D0%BE%D0%BD%D0%B0_%D0%91%D0%BE%D0%B6%D0%B8%D0%B5%D0%B9_%D0%9C%D0%B0%D1%82%D0%B5%D1%80%D0%B8

Type "Icon of Akhtyrsk" in the Google search and see what it brings.
