leave a comment »

The Russian parish of Ss Peter and Paul in Hong Kong published an album “An Icon. Its History, Symbolism, and Meaning,” ‘Voskresenie’ Association of Russian Culture reported on 10 February 2010.

The album contains reproductions of icons painted by contemporary Russian icon painters and texts in Chinese and English that introduce the reader to the history of iconography, the iconographic traditions, and the place of icons in the divine services and spiritual life of Orthodox Christians.

The album offers the Chinese readers an opportunity to get acquainted with a broad and versatile world of Orthodox iconography and with the icons by contemporary icon painters who preserve the best traditions of the Russian schools of icon painting.
