How this relates to the coming Antichrist? I don't know...

^^ That's an interesting hybrid of Western and Eastern wall separating the altar from the rest of the temple.
However, the rest of the pictures from their website are a kind of kitch, it's visible they're vagante.

I like the idea... but there are just some things that could've been so much better that makes it awkward.

For example, the strange / bright color choice, the inconsistent iconographic style, the neon crosses in the background, the statue in front of it (which you can barely see), and the very bad / inconsistent carvings (notice the 4 leaf clovers above the ground icons)

Still like the idea.

While true that they are, indeed, vagante - I called them "vangate" in reference to the architectural style they seem to be modeled after.

I like it.
Somewhere on Athos, Antonis groans, and the skulls of the holy brethren with him!

Nobody found my joke funny? I know it wasn't really funny, but I'd think somebody would appreciate the effort.

That is truly exquisite, beautiful, sublime.  This thread is increasingly less a compilation of unusual iconostases and more a compilation of unusually beautiful iconostases.

This is a beautiful chapel, lovely.

This is visually interesting and particularly impressive for what Orthodox Cognate PAGE likes to call an “Independent Orthodox Church.”

Truly this must be a most unusual icon.
