Great icon!

I explained one like that to the Godkids, yesterday.

The hardest thing for them to understand was Hades.

It is a "location" and yet referred to as an "entity".
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.
—St. Isaac of Syria

I always explain it as the Greeks did --- Hades is Death and death was a prison no one could escape from until our Lord broke down the gates and Death could no longer imprison us for ever.
