Byzantine Icons

The word ‘icon’ is derived from the Greek ‘eikon’, meaning an image. Byzantine icons are popularly known as the art of Eastern Orthodox Christianity (that is, the branch of Christianity pertinent to Byzantium, Syria, Lebanon, Cyprus, Jordan, Greece, Serbia, Bulgaria, and Russia). But they are also much more; they illustrate religious or patriotic stories from the Bible, the Chronicle, the lives of saints and other Christian sources. Byzantine Icons were, and still are, created for prayer and liturgical use in the church and for personal prayers at home or in travel and bridged the gap between man and God. Byzantine icons were so beautifully and skillfully made, that are nowadays part of numerous private collections in addition to being in churches and museums all over the world today.

"...Well, after I had sent my first message earlier today, I returned home and found a very large parcel left at my doorstep! So the icon arrived, and in perfect shape... there may have been some delay due to U.S. Customs, as the documents pouch seems to have been inspected. The icon is wonderfully beautiful - I had not expected such a fine piece for such a small price. It is indeed a work of art, and a worthy tribute to the Holy New-Martyr Angelis! Thank you again for your concern and help. I am very glad that the package arrived, and I am sorry if it caused you any trouble. Thank you again, for excellent service and for this beautiful icon! ..."
