"Let the waters bring forth living creatures having life and let birds fly above the earth."
Colorful and happy. Great for children. It's also nice to have Scripture in a language that we can read on the icon.
If you know anyone who needs or likes uplifting and cheerful colors and images then this will be a great Icon for you to give them.
Let's be clear--if you are sort of "old school", somber and prefer "old fashioned", trational style Icons then you may not like the "modernist" depiction one can feel in this Icon.
I am "old school" in general but took a chance on this Icon and the chance paid off! This "Creation of the Animal Kingdom" Icon will serve a s kind of "Anti-Dote" to any mood of darkness or sorrow.
This "Creation of the Animal Kingdom" evokes a sublime sense of the Joy, Purity and Grace of the state that our Triune God--Yahweh-Father-Son-Holy Ghost--intended for us at the Creation of the Universe.
If you want a Cheeful, Instantly Hope-Filled and Joyful Icon then this is an excellent choice.
This Icon is extraordinarily well made with substantial wood, super great colors and brilliant sharp images.
