Uncut Mountain Supply quality?
« on: December 04, 2018, 04:12:29 PM »
I am looking at buying the icon of Christ "Pantocrator" of Mount Sinai because I love that icon and it's also at the monastery where my name saint was abbot (John of the Ladder). I am looking at Legacy Icons and their 6"x12" is $39.95 and I have a few of their icons and love the quality but I also saw on Uncut Mountain Supply they have an 9.5"x17" for $45 but I've never owned an icon from that company and don't know what the quality is like. Do any of you own one of their icons and can show me pictures of the wood board? Thanks!

For questions about the history of the Lutheran faith see the Book of Concord available from Pastor's office.

Formula of Concord 1577

A restatement of some teachings in the Augsburg Confession over which Lutherans had become divided. The Solid Declaration is the unabridged version. The Epitome is an abridged version intended for congregations to study. Over 8,100 pastors and theologians signed it, as well as over 50 government leaders.

I ordered an icon of Fr. Seraphim Rose from UMS and it arrived two days ago. The image is very clear with no pixelating, has a matte finish, and is mounted on a solid piece of wood. The only caution I would urge is that the image itself looks like it could be scratched/damaged easily, so I would be careful about handling and placement. I'm very happy with it, though, and would definitely order from them again.

Thanks for that info, what does the wood look like? Does it have a rounded edge and painted red?

Yes, pretty much as they show on the site. When I get home from work tonight I'll take a photo and upload it for you.

Also I wouldn't worry about it scratching as they do laminate their icons with a UV protecting matte laminate.

The wood is about 2/3 of an inch thick.

My parish just received an order of about 30 of their icons. Each of them are top notch quality in every way. I was very impressed.

I've purchased from them before, but I didn't care for it.

Someone needs to read his Bible and/or go to church.
I think you can say ~ In the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit and post with charitable and prayerful intentions.

What does uncut mountain mean? How does one cut a mountain?

It's a phrase in Daniel 2:45, a prophecy of the Incarnation:

Inasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold—the great God has made known to the king what will come to pass after this. The dream is certain, and its interpretation is sure.”


The stone is Christ, the "uncut mountain" is the Mother of God. The phrase is in the hymns of many of her feasts.
