Hello! My family has this icon in it's possession, it was likely acquired by a family member before ww2 (or during), anyway, I really need some help understanding it.

I can't read the text, and I have no idea what exactly it portrays. (Assumption Huh)

The whole icon.


Text to the left. (Hard to read this one, I apologize.)


Text to the right.


There's a thread a little similar to this in this forum, now, I ASSUME it's slavic, otherwise I've really chosen the wrong place.
As a thank you for the help... I only have the pictures.  Grin

The icon is called Joy of All Who Sorrow (Vsekh Skorbiashchikh Radost), and arose in Russia in the late 17th century. There are at three historic icons of this type which have wrought miracles. In most versions, the diagonal banners list various maladies and problems which afflict humanity and individuals, which the Virgin, through her intercessions before God, can help with.

Right - "bolnym iscelenie" - "treatment for the ill" - not sure

Left - "nagikh odyevanye" - "clothing fo the naked" - not sure too

Наверное падеж одинаковый - нагим.
