Self-explanatory, it's a thread for art that has Orthodox elements or themes (no icons or photographs)



"Holy Communion" (2009 )- don't know the artist.



"Holy Friday (La vestale chretienne)" (1885) by Theodore Jacques Ralli. I love the fallen candle.



"St. Olga" by Mikhail Nesterov.



Another Nesterov - "A Hermit with a Bear" (1925).



"Confession" (no artist name)

And finally, for Mor Ephrem:



"Fourth Ecumenical Council of Chalcedon" (1876) by Vasily Surikov.

I have plenty more in my vast Pinterest.

Vision to the Youth Bartholemew (1890)

I love Nesterov.  There's a starkness to his paintings, especially in facial features, that I like.

The Slav Epic by Alfons Mucha is delightfully trippy at times, but has a lot of strength through the whole series.
