St. Athanasius exclaimed, “God became man, so that man might become god” – god by grace, not by ‘nature’. Since the birth of Church, when Holy Spirit came upon the Apostles, God was glorified during Liturgical worship. Crescendo during holy Liturgy was – union with God through receiving Holy Communion by the believers. Along the historical way, as Gospels and Epistles were written, they were incorporated within the Liturgy, as well as its other visual aspect – holy icons.
For the Orthodox believers, for the Church, icon is a language that can express its doctrines and commandments as well as the written word. It is theology pressed in shapes and colors that the eye can see. For example, on icon there is no shade as there is no shade in Heaven where God Almighty Is the Light.
Icons we offer to you are made with prayers, by orthodox family where both parents as well as their children and in-laws, with adoration and humility, draw them, or to be more accurate – write them! Beside icons, this family paints churches and monasteries throughout Serbia. The icons of our Lord Jesus Christ, the icons of most holy Theotokos - the Mother of God, the icons of Male and Female holy Saints, the Festal icons - all are full of wonders, i.e. wonderful!
Each icon is a handmade original. It is painted in traditional map of orthodox canons, as a part of Byzantine art. The icon is blessed by Serbian Orthodox Church through the parish priest. It is painted with egg tempera with ground pigments on the 23,75k gold-plated linden wooden board. Background (instead of gold) can be also in color, for example blue, red, and others. Above saint is his name, which can be written on Serbian, English or any language you want. We are confident that you will find here a beautiful icon to support your Orthodox Christian prayer life.
