Can people please post icons of saints which depict the Uncreated Light or Tabor Light?  Obviously the many icons depicting the Transfiguration of our Lord are not required.  I am interested to see how prominent it is in the Orthodox iconographic tradition.

For example, this icon of St. Symeon the New Theologian:
