I like that a lot.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Love this thread so much. So happy to see it's still active.

THE HOLY FAMILY IN EGYPT by Farid Fadel Hanna Murkus

I searched to find more of his artwork, and I found this site that has a whole gamut of styles.  He tends to concentrate on Egyptian society and does some abstract blending.  Among his artwork that seemed Coptic to me were the following (to which I have no title):








Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

Two weeks ago in monastery Floresti in Romania the Liturgy I attended; men carrying prosphoras (firstly they took them to the altar and one of the priests after the epiklesis blessed them, and then they took them to the church to slice them, that every beliver could take them after the Liturgy)

The way I see it, it's intentionally trying to depict the destruction of his relics as a post mortem martyrdom.

That's a propaganda poster for the 1st Balkan War.
And then the three Christian nations + Ottomans turned against Bulgaria (2nd Balkan War).

The famous Athenian street-artist Fikos (who uses Byzantine art to paint Athenian streets, click on each photo for biggest resolution):


Ἦχος Βαρύς

Ὁπλιτικῆς φάλαγγος οἰκεῖον μέλος
ὁ τοῦ βάρους σὺ κλῆσιν εἰληφῶς φέρεις.
Ἧχον τὸν ἁπλοῦν τὸν βάρους ἐπώνυμον
ὁ τοὺς λογισμοὺς ἐν βοαῖς μισῶν φιλεῖ.
Ἀνδρῶν δὲ ἄσμα δευτερότριτε βρέμεις.
Ὧν ποικίλος δὲ τοὺς ἁπλούς ἔχεις φίλους.

That's an adaption of the story for people from another culture. So, e.g in Ethiopian icons Christ and saints are quite Black.
