I don't know what's worse - the sloppy cartoonish style, or the gall of the "artist" to charge $500 for it.

Am I posting? Or is it Schroedinger's Cat?

Oh, the T is painted in the form of a Slavic cross.

.... and the artist proudly proclaims this:

Can you find someone's favorite animals hidden in this beautiful icon? This icon may well contain the world's first iconographic depiction of guinea pigs

Oy.

At least the icon didn't call him "The Saint Formerly Known As Simeon Ivanovich Antonov".

Who drew (not wrote, because it is uncanonical)
The word for "write an icon" and "paint an icon" is the same in Greek.

"Writing" doesn't make it more holy and is a silly american thing.  :police:

As an EO I admit we helped it catch on.
The unending "write" vs "draw" argument is perhaps one of the best features of Orthodoxy.
God bless!

Why do they always make the poor Theotokos all squared off and neckless?

 :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

More seriously, you've nailed a major flaw in this composition: it is very easy to interpret the winged figure as being the Mother of God, because of the figure of Christ in a mandorla, the veil and the three stars of ever-virginity on it. Unfortunately, the Prosoponites, including the founder of the outfit, are particularly resistant to correction, even when great errors like this are made.
It's very easy to interpret the winged figure as being the Mother of God because that is what the artist intended based off of the theological concepts--heretical or otherwise--behind such iconography. It is intentional.
You sound like a professional who knows what he's talking about.  That's because you are.

I dunno, I kind of like the visual style (though not for an icon, of course). It kind of has a "70s pulp sci-fi illustration vibe" like some books I had as a kid (second hand, I'm not that old lol).
Is that what they teach you at the temple volnutt-stein?

Tsar Nicholas. But the description is so long: saint righteous tsar great martyr Nicholas redeemer

In 1917 Metropolitan Macarius of Moscow saw in a vision the Saviour speaking to Tsar Nicholas: "You see," said the Lord, "two cups in my hands: one is bitter for your people, and the other is sweet for you." In the vision the Tsar begged for the bitter cup. The Saviour then took a large glowing coal from the cup and put it in the Tsar's hands. The Tsar's whole body then began to grow light, until he was shining like a radiant spirit. Then the vision changed to a field of flowers, in the middle of which Nicholas was distributing manna to a multitude of people. A voice spoke: "The Tsar has taken the guilt of the Russian people upon himself and the Russian people is forgiven." Nicholas him self once said: "Perhaps an expiatory sacrifice is needed for Russia's salvation. I will be that sacrifice. May God's will be done!

I thought that was considered a heresy, the idea that the Tsar was some kind of sin offering.
