I love this. Can you tell me who the artist is and some background about this painting?

Viktor Bychkov.  This one is called Carrying the Cross.  He has another, more recent one called The Carrying of the Cross

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

You're welcome.  As an aside, the schemamonk in the painting looks like Hieroschemamonk Gabriel (Bunge).

Illustration of the aerial toll houses by some DeviantArt artist called CosmasDamianos

"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

May the Blessed Light shine Forth

Descent from the Cross


Scene on a grave
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.
