My first thought was about the melting of this church, that will happen inevitably. The faces in those icons will all start to melt. To me, it looks seriously blasphemous.

Quite silly  . But it was a German's idea. I do not know wether the priests are Greek-Catholic or Orthodox, though.

I agree that it is silly, the one priest wore a type of  'hat' that led me to believe he was Greek Catholic though.

How do you know?
It is impossible to tell, plus in the area there are not that many Greek-Catholics (Balea- Lac).

It looks like one of the priests on the left is wearing a biretta. Those certainly are not Orthodox vestments.

Correct, this is a latin-rite RC priest

Blasphemy is a serious charge of a sin unto death.   I believe you are misusing it here.

So, if I take a black marker and paint the face of a saint, isn't it blasphemous, as I'm destroying the icon? If you make an icon that you know will be corrupted soon, because of heat, isn't it blasphemous right from the start?

A principle of iconography is that an icon is made of materials which are not ephemeral, i.e. not unstable or unduly fragile or delicate. Ice is an inherently unstable material, unless maintained at a suitable temperature.

There is also the matter of prayer and fasting, both before an icon begins to be painted, and during the painting process. Any information on whether the ice sculptors complied with this requirement?  Wink

Apparently this was not an Orthodox project, so how it was carried out really shouldn't concern us.

Let's not be so serious about this. Don't let it worry you. For sure, unlike many of our issues, it is just going to melt away. I thought it was a 'novelty' story and didn't even post it under news.

Hello
I do not think that those priests are orthodox. 2 years ago, when this building was constructed for the first time, the Metropolitan of Ardeal, IPS Laurentiu, has forbidden the implication of the orthodox priests in this project. The ,,church" was not consacrated by an orthodox priest and the priests are not allowed to  minister there. He said that a church must be for forever, not for melting.

http://www.crestinortodox.ro/stiri/jurnalul-national/mitropolitul-ardealului-permite-oficierea-slujbelor-biserica-gheata-75696.html

The consacracion of a church can be done only by a bishop, not a priest (at least in the Romanian Orthodox Church).

Situated at an altitude of 2,034 meters in the Fagaras Mountains (Sibiu County), the ice service is made of astronomic chunks of ice extracted from Balea Lake, reports Agerpres word message. The layer of the religion is of 100 sqm and it faculty score the content to invited an figure of 40 to 50 visitors.
Prior to the building's authoritative porta, a aggroup of priests of different religions gift hold an open-air operate, with the function of the Christly solemnisation of the Epiphany (commemorated on January 6). Asvina the previous geezerhood, this circumstance module consist in the "blessing" of the business materials, as fine as the otherwise ice buildings in the expanse - the Ice Hotel and the Chalet.
If withstand conditions are not extremum, the ice service present be waiting by the end of the period, in the position where deceive has reached a elevation of 82 centimeters. This is the fifth ice religion constructed in the atlantic, the prime one having been erected in the 2006-2007 period. Reservations for wedding know already been made at the service, as a Country distich is thinking on a affair in Mar to pretend their vows.
As a shaper of inspiration, the ice antiquity holds a service from Malancrav, the community from Sibiu where Majuscule Britain's Prince Physicist has a residence.
In ordination to tug the Ice Hotel, one would love to aim to Balea Cascada and from there, screw the conductor car to Balea Lac.
