Interesting photos.

Of course the word icon means image, or likeness. It is the prototype of the archtype. It is a copy, in some way, of the real thing.

Icons that are used in worship of our God are also very beautiful things. They help us to focus on the "Who" behind the image.
It has also been said they are a window into heaven.

In Genesis it says we were created in God's image. We, then, are the icons of God. When we look at other people, we are looking at a picture of God. By loving others and giving them honor, we are loving and honoring God. (No one can love God and hate his brother.)

Yes, iconography, as you do it, is an art form. But writing an icon for worship is so much more.
