I rather like that version of the Old Testament Trinity.

So do I.  But I also like the New Testament Trinity.  ;)

due to their 'hand me down' status, I checked them all with LBK before I put them up.

There are some not up there that I had to play 'Google' with....like 'georgian icon man holding a building' and then just trawl through pages of images until i found the right one.

The Old Testament Trinity is way more cool and mysterious, being before the incarnation and all that. ;)

Although if you look at the pictures of my older icon corners, you'll see that I do have a soft spot for the New Testament Trinity as well. 8)

I managed to find mine pretty cheap ($10-$20), but if you want one badly enough, they can be found on eBay sometimes from $50 to $200. I remember taking it to church to get it blessed shortly after buying it, and a random parishioner sees it and offers me $50 on the spot for it, lol. :P

Nice! :)

Nephi, what's the book sitting with the spine facing out in the centre front of your icon corner? Thanks!

Thank you!

It's the St. Philip's Prayer Manual, which can be found here.

Thanks for that Nephi :)

An updated Icon corner:



Mostly paper Icons that are a blend of Coptic, Byzantine, and Ethiopian styles.

A quick question (well two haha).

I know the convention for an icon corner is to have an icon of Christ, one of the Theotokos, and one's patron saint, but how does one choose *which* icon type to choose?

Second, where does one get wall crosses?

Thanks in advance

Many of the places that carry icons and prints will also sell various crosses. Some places can be found mentioned in this recent thread.

I'm not sure where others have got them, but you can find them on Ebay easily enough.

While it's not in my icon corner since I already have a crucifix shadowbox, I have this one:



It's on the small side, but nice.

Then, getting more expensive, there are bigger ones like this:



Just do an Ebay search for "Orthodox wall cross" or "Orthodox wall crucifix." Or look at stores that sell icons like Asteriktos said.

Second, where does one get wall crosses?

I've never bought a wall cross.  I received one as a gift of sorts which I hang on the wall from September to November.  I have a few hand crosses which are easy enough to hang on the wall if desired, but I don't usually do that. 

Currently, I have this on the table in front of my icons (it looks better than the picture at the link, but it is just that simple).  I have a few of these table crosses (mostly Indian, but one Armenian and one Greek)...I bought one for my burial and I liked it so much I was hooked.  :)

I have a St Brigid's cross, handmade in Ireland (with reeds from the Shannon, even). It's particularly good for tucking other greenery in, like flowers from the Epitaphion currently. ;)

No.  You can do that, but you can also designate a "corner" where you will pray, keep one or two icons there, and put the others wherever you'd like.  Candles and incense are nice, but also not necessary everywhere.  

I keep two candles in my "corner" (it's really not a corner, but the wall facing East), but I rarely light them, instead I keep an oil lamp burning before them.  I don't use incense.  Not all of my icons are in the corner, but only a few.  Elsewhere in my living space, I have a couple of icons which are just on the wall or on a shelf, etc., but nothing fancy, and most of the icons I've acquired over the years I keep in "storage" except when "seasonally appropriate".  There's a lot of freedom when it comes to things like this--there are some basic "common" elements, but a lot of leeway.

Thank you for your help. I'm currently trying to find space to set up a place to pray regularly and want some of my icons there (I don't have tons, just a couple of the Theotokos, a couple of Christ, and one of St Anthony)

It is enameled metal.  Like everything except the large Costantine and Helen and the tiny paper Juvenal the Cross actually belonged to my uncle, currently in hospice care. When the family cleaned and sold his house, we each got things we wanted. I asked my cousin to set aside anything with a cross or that was icon-y

My larger family are iconoclasts, but this one uncle had a 'thing' for orthodoxy   The tall icon on the right side of the shelf is St. David the Restorer of Georgia. We have family there and my uncle taught school there for a while too.

It is preferable to be on an eastern corner, however, if your door will hit the Icons it's okay to place them in a more decent place. :)

Anything eastern is ideal, regardless of it being a corner or a wall or whatever. Plenty of people have "icon walls" and it's just a matter of custom and preference.

I've never had an icon corner, per se. Before I redid my room and got more space for things, all of my icons were on my dresser. Now I have everything on a little table. I have no idea if the table is on the eastern side or not, isn't that bad?
