"Let the waters bring forth living creatures having life and let birds fly above the earth."
Love this icon, beautifully crafted and packaged. Thank you so much.
The joy in this icon is palpable. Stunning colors and full of glory. Even my lukewarm Protestant husband, upon viewing this, said: "we're going to have to get the entire Creation set". Proper art matters and speaks to something our current culture will not. Beauty changes everything. I feel like bowing when I see the tenderness and awesome power of God in this. Thank you so much (and for helping hub-and me, move more into Reality.)
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.
