Icon — holy image

pages: 143-145

Abstract

The iconography is a special kind of Art, which does not care to be artistic on the first place, because its first aim is to convey the deposit of Faith by pictorial means. It is inseparable from Liturgy, therefore it bears the imprint of its glory and of its humility. One can venerate and kiss such an artefact of prayer, what is, however, unthinkable before the greatest pictures of secular painting.
