Orthodox icons made in St Elisabeth Convent.
An Orthodox icon is a painted Gospel. It conveys the Gospel truths and important spiritual values with the means of art.
Each detail is filled with deep meaning, be it color, hand gestures, certain objects, the entire composition or the perspective. An icon shows a saint who is already glorified and transformed - this is why he or she, as a rule, does not move, but is static, calm, and enlightened. Icons remind the people of our times that apart from the present world there is an alternative world, the true world that we can enter only through a lot of hard work and effort, many prayers and frequent communion.
There are many wonderworking icons, such as the icon of Our Lady of Vladimir, Our Lady of Kazan, The Mother of God of Tikhvin, Our Lady of Jerusalem - too many of them to list here, in fact. However, when we venerate any Orthodox icon, we are aware of the fact that it is not the wood and the paint that we honor but the person whose image it bears.
The catalog of St Elisabeth Convent contains over 1,000 icons painted in accordance with Byzantine, Russian, and Greek styles. These icons span across many trends, styles, and years.
