Icons are an unseparable part of Orthodox christianity. They are stilicized pictures of Christ, Mother of God Mary, holy people (saints), angels or church feasts.
The iconographic faces do not show changing human emotions, but the faces shine divine peace and tranquility.
An icon is a medium of prayer: like a window into the church triumphant of the saints, a window into eternity. Icons are not worshipped, but through the icons it is possible to show reverence to the saints depicted in them. The Orthodox ecclesiastical art has remained relatively unchanged throughout the time. The task of an iconographer (icon painter) is not to underline his own work, but to continue an ancient tradition through his own hand to the glory of God.
