I'd like a 13ft tall Sinai Pantocrator.

You could always see if Dormition Skete would print you that, but it'd have to be stretched across two of their largest available sized papers/canvases. Probably cost you between $1500-4000 (depending on how you want it), but you really can't put a price tag on making the garage into the best darn house chapel west of Tripoli. Am I right?

Is that the True Sacred Matchbox Car of Bithynia or is it just a replica?

I completely lost my sides on this one. :laugh: Beautiful corner, still.

Here is mine. It will grow after I visit the Metropolitan Cathedral in São Paulo next Sunday.

I finally have a photo of part of my icon corner/wall.

Each icon is dear to me...and its own story. 

The two main icons of Christ and the Theotokos...my mother bought for me when we visited Ukraine some 20 years ago.  They were supposed to be for my marriage.  ;)   

The St. Elizabeth icon was gifted to me by a neighboring parish.  I did some work for them and refused payment....so, they surprised me with an icon...knowing I would never refuse my own Patron Saint.

The little prayer card of the Resurrection was just gifted to us by His Grace Bishop Daniel when he visited us for Pascha.




This is on my East facing bedroom wall.  It makes me smile just looking at it.  :)

Yes, it is! It was the only nice icon I could find of him.

I couldn't afford pre-mounted icons, so I ordered from nice prints and then printed the rest out myself and mounted all of them onto canvas boards that I had painted.  Not perfect, but nothing to be ashamed of, I think :)
The main corner is not on an eastern wall, but it is central to the house so I can see my vigil lamp from almost anywhere in the house; the corner is also opposite the front door, which I like.  Then both my son and I have icons on the walls opposite our beds.
