Icon representing St. Trifon, oil on panel, 18 x 16 cm, 2019

In Russia, Saint Trifon is regarded as the patron saint of birds. There is a story that when Tsar Ivan IV (called The Terrible) was out hunting, one of his falconers, Trifon Patrikeiev, lost the Tsar’s favourite gyrfalcon. He ordered his falconer to find the bird within three days, or else he would be put to death. Trifon searched the whole area, but without luck.

On the third day, exhausted by long searching, he returned to Moscow to the place called Maryina Roscha. Overcome with weariness, he lay down to rest, fervently praying to his patron saint, the Martyr Trifon, for help.

In a dream he saw a youth on a white horse, holding the Tsar’s falcon on his hand. The youth said: “Take the falcon, bring it to your Tsar and do not grieve!” When he awakened, the falconer spotted the falcon on a pine tree. He took it to the Tsar and told him about the miraculous help he had received from the holy Martyr Trifon.
The Tsar gave his falconer a generous reward for recovering the bird, and Trifon used the reward to put up a chapel in Naprudnoe dedicated to St. Trifon on the place where he found the falcon.

The extended version of the story has it that the falcon was found at the estate of a famous Boyar, whose daughter Trifon eventually married.
