This "icon" washed up on the beach recently on the California coast near Fort Ross, found by one of the curators who is not Orthodox, but friends with local parishes and the Calistoga monastery.  Rather bizarre how it is reproducing a section of St Peter the Aleut's Wiki from a Mac.

Soon replicas of the legendary Fortrosskaya icon will be crowding the shelves of parish bookstores.
