More About Icons

In his latest newsletter, The Painter's Keys, Robert Genn writes "In earlier times there was a shortage of visual media. The illustration of a religious figure served to give a living presence to a deity or a holy one. To this day, particularly in remote villages, people have deep respect for this art and its creators, both dead and alive. Good harvests, happy occasions, or divine interventions still deserve an icon."

I hope Robert will write about the importance of angel art next!:-)
