Sorry, I'm an idiot.
Why would you say that? Don't be so tough with yourself...

Because the source of where I took the picture from said Spoleto, Italy, and I read the first two letters and thought "Ah, SPAIN!"

The Crucifix that I wear is a Celtic Cross. Although I bought a new Russian Cross that I will wear when it arrives because the Celtic Cross is rusting.

I got it pretty quick because it's the name of a delicious pasta fast-food chain.

Fresco of the Life of Saint Catherine of Alexandria by the same artist
(Bottom left is obviously Theotokos and Child, not sure who the bottom right and center are
- bottom right seems to be Mary Magdalene, and maybe Pope Linus due to the red?)

Despite being pre-schism, I don't know if you could consider them "icons" just from how visually intense they are, despite how pretty they are.

Still found worth posting though.

It's good to know that if a British Orthodox church were to exist this artstyle would be acceptable.

Having a hard time interpreting this one. Is the kneeling man with the staff supposed to be the one who offered Him gall and vinegar or is he a depiction of the patron who commissioned the sculpture? I'm guessing by the crozier in his hand, that the pointing man is not St. John the Baptist (or is he?).
Christ my God, set my heart on fire with love in You, that in its flame I may love You with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul and with all my strength, and my neighbor as myself, so that by keeping Your commandments I may glorify You the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Amen.
