Icons are a very important part in the orthodox church.
You will find icons in the iconostasis which divide the nave with the altar.
In other parts of the church with a very significant meaning, everything is coded in a certain way.
Icons are hand written by God and the artist offers his hand to do so.
An icon must follow the tradition, colors have a meaning and context as well.
An icon is holy by the name that it has and the image that it represents.
Orthodox venerate icons feeling the presence of the one shown on it and adore God only.
Every home has icons and a special good corner specifically dedicated.
If you wish to know more about icons visit the Christian Gift Shop where you can buy booklet dedicated to the subject.
