Council of Nicea:
Εθη ἀρχαῖα κρατείτω. 
Mores antiqui obtineant.
The ancient ways shall prevail.

The sentiment of Nicea in Greek and Latin, translated into English.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

All the transparents in Syria and Lebanon for Serbian patriarch Ireneos are correct, but this one... The end seems to be Google Translate, as in Arabic "Sahib al-ghibta" means "His Eminence" but the word "sahib" alone means "owner", "friend", it's also connected with following.
So, in Serbian it's written "pratioce" ("followers") and "ghibta" is just transcribed  :laugh:



"ghibta" your colloquial imalah is showing. ;)

Where can these (or similar) be found?  Are there other icons like this?  Ones that can be felt?
Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no idea, so there’s that.

https://www.draganacmonastery.com/product-category/wooden-icons/

https://www.draganacmonastery.com/product-category/wooden-crosses-en/

Or do a search for "carved icons/crosses".  There are a few sellers online of varying quality.  There are also icons that are laser cut (sounds cooler than they tend to look, quality-wise).
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Saw a photo, remembered youth, wanted to share with someone. This is the first restored Church in the monastery, where I sang, read, served censer... Slept in a candle shop during the morning rule )) Digging him out of the ground. There was a cemetery up the hill, and in Soviet times, sand was mined in its place, and the soil with graves was raked down to the temple. Dig-dig, look: skull!
This is what he looked like when we first arrived. It had a smithy:
