Chasin' down a Hoodoo...

The Icon: A Seven Part Documentary

 At a little over three hours, it's quite an endeavor.  But I've watched about a half hour and it's been enjoyable as well as educating.  I'm interested in LBK's thoughts.

Thanks for the link.  I will try to find time to watch it.  I opened the original website and it is said to be based on Bishop Jovan's book (he resides id diocese of Nish, eastern Serbia). I happy to see that it has English subtitles...

IIRC, LBK restores icons, studies icons and teaches about icons, however, does not write icons.

Although, I agree a website of examples and information would be great!!!  Smiley

I don't have a website, and I do not paint icons, though, as Liza said, I have restored a few damaged ones. There were no working master iconographers in my neck of the woods in my youth, so I had no chance to learn when I would have been able to make the most of it. So I turned my hand to learning, writing, and teaching about them, as well as helping priests and other iconographers when they seek my advice.

I downloaded it, and I'm going to cut it up into the original episodes. I understand that one big file may be easier to upload, but 3.5 hours straight? Ain't nobody got time for that.
