All lesbian anachronisms aside, I really like the Book of Kells-esque “Not Made by Hands” in the center. Would totally get that as a stand alone icon.

i... dont.. understand... this...

Orthodox_Slav, the person who painted this has painted several "icons" which have a pro-homosexual message. This one shows Sts Perpetua and Felicity as lesbian lovers. Similarly, he has claimed Sts Sergius and Bacchus were homosexual, and painted them to reflect this.

It's frankly awful how modern society can't understand male friendships and twists everything to be sexual
“God,”
The words rumbled:
“There is much suffering,
But the church is alive. "

 “How long, Archpriest, are we to suffer thus?” I answered: “Until our very death, Markovna!” And she replied, with a sigh: “So be it, Petrovich, let us plod on.” - Life of Avvakum by Himself

The gesture, rather than the word, is the true transmitter of traditions.

I wonder why they used such a weird frame, though.

It's probably done that way to replicate a piece of an ancient fresco.

I've seen it before in differently shaped pieces of wood.  Some like this:

Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.
