I purchased this as a gift for my sponsor at my Chrismation. Such a lovely remembrance of this feast day!
This icon (like all of robin Armstrong's icons) captures and holds fast a never-ending moment of sacred history. A deep silence, the silence of eternity, envelops the scene, which seems to take place outside time in an eternal now. The gestures of all the participants, beautifully conceived and realized, convey deep spiritual meaning. This work, like all real icons, is a window into the timeless divine.
