I know it's wrong. I just thought it was a nice piece from a purely aesthetic POV.

Why don't you ask that question of one of the 16th century iconographers who started that practice? ;)

Meh, I'd consider icons depicting God the Father more canonical than those depicting the Logos as the Ancient of Days.

Ha, because they want to.  The same reason that many of the canons are not followed, yet people still call themselves "canonical".  Just be in communion with the EP and you can wear an upsidedown cross and sacrifice goats to the devil (well, that is probably extreme, but it seems like you can get close).  Following canons just makes you Hyperdox Hermann. 
I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

Cute photo.

I had to chase one of those adorable overstuffed critters out of my garage the other week.   He must of sneaked in when I got home, and I closed him in there for the night.
Needless to say, when I was leaving for work, I noticed a few things were "out of place" in the garage, things thrown around....and just as I was thinking how big of a mouse problem do I have, the critter crawls out from under the car.  Good thing the rake was close by! LOL!  Scared the living daylights out of me!

I had to leave the garage door open a crack so that he would find his way out, while I was at work.

My wife would have said how cute he was and then tried to pick him up and pet him.  We had on under our porch for a while.  This photo is of a European Marmot which is related to our American Groundhog.

This one is for the conspiracy enthusiasts...got this off Facebook.

Conspiracy or coincidence, If looked at close , the five dollar bill represents the twin towers, the ten is after the planes collided, the twenty shows a building colapsing, the fifty is the dust and smoke, and the hundred is a new beginning.

Oh, his cuteness wasn't lost on me.....however, I can only imagine their claws which they use to dig with, might be sharp....and I held the rake between him and myself until I exited the garage.  I know.... I know....  He was more scared of me than I of him....however, I was rushing off to work and just didn't have time to give him the time he deserved.
:)

....had I the time, you KNOW I would have taken a photo of him and posted it!  LOL!

Wow! It's great! I wonder how many time the author has spent on this project (first to invent and than to build it).

I remember that in childhood I was trying to build a church with blocks but I had not so great imagination and enough elements :P
