Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

I like the watercolor of the Patriarch.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

Glorification of Mitropolitan Mikhail
"For what shall it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his soul?" - Mark 8:36 (DRA)

Do Thou, O Sovereign lady,
By Thy joy-bestowing honorable Icon "Queen of All,"
Save those who with fervent desire implore Thy grace;
Deliver from afflictions those who run to Thee;
From all dangers do Thou guard Thy flock,
Who ever call upon Thine intercession.

Works by Nikola Sarić; he's a Serbian iconographer and painter.
His cycles:
Witnesses
Examples:
St. John Chrysostom


Noah



Parables of Christ
Examples:

Pharisee and Publican


Greatn Banquet


Akathist to st. Demetrius
Example:
Ikos 12


He's the same artist who also painted the unique icon of the Coptic martyrs of Libya.
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

That's an interesting website:

For me it's more art than icons, so that's why I decided to link the images and the site in this thread.

It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.

It might be a fun project (especially for those of us in the west where orthodoxy is more "exotic" ) to show artifacts and paintings from their local museum on things related to Orthodoxy.

Chicago just not to long ago had this exhibit:
http://www.artic.edu/exhibition/heaven-and-earth-art-byzantium-greek-collections

I wish I would have started a thread on it on this site as it was going on.
