what kind of lab lets you wear sandals like that?!

that is some beautiful iconography. If I'm reason this correctly, Petka?

Yes it is.

Do you happen to know if there is an icon of the deisis with the same style?
There are many baroque icons of deisis.

I saw maybe 2 online, but not a lot

Heinz was brought in because if this Council doesn't cut the mustard then Orthodoxy is going to be in a real pickle.

The Fathers of the last truly true Ecumenical Council graciously accepted the iconoclasts without much more than repentance and a proper confession of faith. This cannot be allowed for those who blasphemously use non-Heinz products. By their actions they reveal that they are in dire need of exorcism and baptism.

I was looking for examples on internet to show you, and failed to find any. :D  Only exception is when entire baroque iconostasis was shot. From my experience, 18 to middle 20 Churches have baroque iconostases and Icons... and Deisis among them. In Serbia, this is in most cases in North (Vojvodina province). Only from 20 century, we can follow return to Byzsntine traditional Iconography. St. Sava Church walls will be painted in Byzantine style mosaics, and with Byzantine iconostasis. All newer Churches, built in last 30 years, follow Byzantine iconography patterns.

They're definitely Orthodox, though at least one of the Facebook comments noted (with surprise and pleasure) the coordination of the event(s).  :)

Why do Orthodox use a picture of the Theotokos that resembles Our Lady of Fatima?

It's actually rather nice hobby. The feeling is quite ecstatic when you get back to sauna after swimming in an icy water. Some people do it without sauna though. Should probably try it sometimes.

Also,  it is said that if you swim regularly in an icy lake you'll never get flu or anything.

Ah.  There are Copts among us so they can probably explain it better.  I presumed it was a fondness for Western style images, but then I saw some photographs of the Zeitoun apparitions in which our Lady appeared at times in more or less this "pose", so then I wondered if this image became popular for that reason.  These are just guesses, though.
