Armenian khachkar unveiled in Polish city
17:56 • 18.09.18


A cross-stone monument (khachkar) dedicated to the Armenian-Polish friendship was unveiled on Sunday in Poland’s south-eastern city of Zamość, a historical center registered on the UNESCO World Heritage List, the Foreign Ministry’s press service reports.

The monument-sculpture, featuring an Armenian khachkar, the emblem of the Polish city and the image of a former Armenian church, was carved by sculptor Varazdat Hambardzuymyan in Yerevan.

Nice!  Khachkars are like kittens; they cause us to smile by virtue of their mere existance.

Awesome
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.

That's beautiful!
Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no clue, so there's that.

This is the only kachkar (real one made of carved stone) I know exists in Brazil. Maybe there are others, but I couldn't found any info about them.
