It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.

Proposed iconostasis for Saint Nicholas Shrine at the World Trade Center:



That church is so white it's racist.
Is it just the lighting, or are the icons on the screen black and white?
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

St. Paul the Apostle Orthodox Church - Dayton, OH
First time I've ever seen an OCA church without an ikonostasis. I can't remember seeing any other EO church without one, either.

The Trinity icon.

It's not the done thing, to depict the Father, although you do sometimes see Christ as the Ancient of Days.

Biro found it! My priest told me that this Icon took origin in the west, and it is not Orthodox at all.

Yet, it's pretty common.  Not really strange.

God-the-Father icons are extremely common in Orthodoxy and any claim that they're not Orthodox is several centuries too late.

The chapel at Al Bustan is dedicated to the Nativity of the Virgin Mary, the All-holy Theotokos. It is unusual in having a low iconostasion. This gives a clear view of the walls and ceiling, which were painted in a secco technique by Father Pachomios, a monk of Sinai who died in 1958.

Roman Catholic one; you can read on the parish website:
Quote
Храм и парохијски центар су у почетку били под закупом, па су затим купљени 1997. године од римокатоличке цркве. Постојећи храм посвећен је Св. апостолу Луки и преуређен је за православно богослужење.
so it means:
"The temple and parish center were still to buy, in 1997 they were bought from Roman Catholci Church. The temple is devoted to st. Luke and is rearranged for Orthodox services.

I saw in swiss tv a report about catholic parishes being bought by the serbian orthodox church, apparently, serbians are way more churchgoers than the swiss.

Not really an iconostasis, but interesting regardless, being it in a (probably) XVI-century nave in a Latin monastery (Yuso Monastery, San Millán de la Cogolla, Spain).
