Ya, I'm not sure if this one is "icon".  It's more "art gallery" type, not intended for veneration practices.  It tells us a message, similar to the "icon" of the "non-saint" Origen teaching the saints.

Yes, I meant that  I just liked the art and the message.

“Universe,” “love,” “eternity,” “brotherhood,” “peace,” “life,” “justice,” “truth,” “God”… These are big words. Very big words. But not nearly big enough. They can’t be defined; they can only be lived.

They do. Last decades there's revivial of true icon in Roman Catholicism, after centuries of worshiping images (plus a few icons of the Theotokos), that started in Renessance. This revival is connected with a few things, probaly new technologies (=discovering Eastern Christianity), neocatechumenal way, maybe some thoughts of Vaticanum Secundum.

However, I think that e.g in Poland thanks to the huge Orthodox population there Latins were more aware of icons, especially that our Lady of Częstochowa - the most beloved Theotokos' image by Poles - is in fact an Orthodox icon.

Mexicans and Palestinians look the same.
Maybe some Mexicans has Palestinian (or generally speaking, Arab) roots.

Rome condemned it fiercely. Iconoclasm was a very Constantinopolitan thing, its jurisdiction grew a lot in this time, they wouldn't convince other sees so this was the only way to spread the heresy.
Only-begotten Son and Logos of God, being immortal, you condescended for our salvation to take flesh from the holy Theotokos and ever-virgin Mary and, without change, became man. Christ, our God, you were crucified and conquered death by death. Being one with the Holy Trinity, glorified with the Father and the Holy Spirit: save us.

Really gotta appreciate the addition of the synonyms. Says a lot about the people who it's made for.
"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.
