Description

Shimmering with bright reds, greens, and golds, this icon is the work of the master and most famous Russian iconographer, Saint Andrei Rublev.  Each iconographer paints images on receptive medium to accept and maintain the divine forms revealed to us from the Blessed Kingdom Which can know no end.  The Creative Will of God opens by this revelation a glimpse into Eternal verities, and by this vision of form, changes us as we behold such timeless and yet interactive beauty, giving gladness from on high when our hearts are turned to Him in love.

In a similar way, the interior canvas of the iconographer can be the medium that God works His Image and Likeness into active and vibrant form, for truly this art is not just earthly, but Heavenly and transfigurative.  Some mediums are more receptive than others, and here we see the remarkable spirituality and transcendence of Saint Andrei Rublev’s icons which mark them out from even other great icons.  We see the man himself, too, as a saint filled with holiness expressing such Godliness in his figures of God and  human bodies.  O Holy Father Saint Andrei, pray to God for us!!
