It's a word that has been Americaned, I think mostly notably in adjective form deiparous.

Schlock?

No. The Kozelshchanskaya is of western origin, and in many ways falls short of canonicity (absence of stars, the exposed hair of the Virgin, etc) but is not schlock. It's in that nebulous group, like Akhtirskaya and Ostrobramskaya, arising from the geographic overlap between RC west and Orthodox east.

Ghastly and stupid. The disembodied hands (presumably representing the crucified Christ) as a creative variant of Christ Emmanuel are silly enough, but the clincher is the Virgin blessing (only male saints of clerical rank bless), and with her left hand to boot.  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

Mary, Gethsemane, and the Nativity.

Attractive Asian Christian art, but utterly unsuitable for Orthodox veneration. There's a thread somewhere where I had quite a bit to say about a picture of Christ and the Mother of God painted as Chinese nobility. A great deal of this sort of stuff comes out of RC circles where "social inclusion" is a major credo.

What is he doing?

It's an iconographic representation of this passage from 2 Samuel:

12And it was told king David, saying, The LORD has blessed the house of Obededom, and all that pertains to him, because of the ark of God. So David went and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obededom into the city of David with gladness. 13And it was so, that when they that bore the ark of the LORD had gone six paces, he sacrificed oxen and fatted calves. 14And David danced before the LORD with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod.

The mural is in a church dedicated to Prophet David the King, in Tblisi, Georgia. This is one of many murals showing scenes from the life of the prophet.

But LBK, what is David doing there?  It doesn't look like he's sacrificing oxen and fatted calves (unless they're dwarves), dancing in a linen ephod, or even carrying the Ark.  My first impression was that he was forcefully throwing a bag of money onto a table.  Tongue

These are painted by of an artist from Georgia, David Popiashvili - Давид Попиашвили. Date of birth 1969, Tbilisi, Georgia. Graduated from the State Academy of Fine Arts.

I think they are beautiful.

And? The article you've linked to states clearly that the book where these illustrations feature is a work of "creative fantasy". In other words, a product of the writer's and, therefore, the artist's, imaginations. Further evidence that these pictures cannot be considered to be icons. Folk art, yes, as I wrote before. Cute pictures to illustrate a book, yes. Icons, no.

I agree. These pictures are good illustrations, but I would not want them to be icons. Even though the Georgian iconographic style is different from the Byzantine or Russo-Byzantine standards, these paintings do not conform even to the Georgian style. These might even be didactic and in good taste, but why bring up these illustrations in a discussion about icons?

That's the problem with the AE-TR; they don't vet the heterodox alien devotions in light of proper Orthodox practice! The Sacred Heart devotion clearly arose well after the schism of stardate 41153.7.

But it organically developed out of the legitimate tradition of the Brodo Asogian Church! Why should we force them to give up their heritage that, when properly understood, is fully Orthodox? That's just anti-ET hyperdoxy! Remember what the Holy and Pious St. John, Apostle to the Extra-Terrestrials said:

"Never, never, never let anyone tell you that, in order to be Orthodox, you must be an Earthling. The Brodo Asogians were fully Orthodox for millenia, and their venerable liturgy is far older than any of their heresies."

"Never, never, never let anyone tell you that, in order to be Orthodox, you must be an Earthling. The Brodo Asogians were fully Orthodox for millenia, and their venerable liturgy is far older than any of their heresies."
Ecumenist garbage! Everyone knows that Orthodoxy is the faith that founded the universe, and if the u-word Brodo Asogians — and I would call them much worse than u-words, if the forum rules would allow us to speak of the ETs as they have been historically known — truly wanted to be Orthodox, they would return to it in its most fully preserved form, the EASTERN, EARTHEN TERRESTRIAL form. I would rather be an atheist than worship in a church that allowed reunion with the aliens without them abandoning their disgusting Sacred Heart icons.

Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.
