ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š In addition, when reading (and in lectures) of the Icon contraversty it has been suggested that humans themselves have a hypostasis and this is part of the reason that humans and saints can be depicted in icons.
Ofcourse humans have a hypostasis. In fact, any existing thing has a hypostasis. A hypostasis is simply a subsisting actualisation or realisation of abstract realities. For example, the human nature is simply an abstract reality which is peculiar by virtue of certain theoretical properties and attributes that we can assign to it in order to distinguish it from other natures, e.g. the divine. That abstract reality however can be realised in a specific being; the human natural reality is realised in the human being, and that realisation is the hypostasis of that human being.
I believe that it is the possession of personhood (rather than a hypostasis) which is peculiar to humans. A person
is a "rational hypostasis"; a hypostasis with consciousness, will, intellect etc. I think this was a thing realised well before any Icon controversey however.
