It must be very peaceful to pray in there.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

I wonder who the monk with no face is (second shelf from top, to the left of the schemamonk).

Perhaps he fell on the rock cliffs of Athos.  Only God knows.

Melts the heart.

A bit to mellifluous for me, but then I am sick.

It is and I'm not.

By "mellifluous" do you mean "saccharine"?

Of course I do not know what you simply mean, unless it is artificially sweet. And yes, it is.
Oh, and Hecma, if you are not sick then have a better Lent.

Mellifluous means "pleasant to hear", which can't apply to a picture (unless you were being poetic). I assume you meant "sickly sweet or sentimental", which is what "saccharine" means.

What describes the picture pretty well.

It's the Western influence. Too realistic. This picture needs to be redone in proper Orthodox iconographic style.

1. No one puts 4 random kettles on a shelf like that.
2. They have panckes but no plates or cutlery

These as well bother me.

As a beekeeper we also use that term for anything that is overly sweet as we find honey to be the sweetest taste around yet folks have come up with things that are sickenly sweet and use this adjective in an expanded sense. Euphoric voice would be more precise in your correct approach.
Thank you for telling me the more exact and precise, most often used meaning.

He might be right; kids that age + gravity?
