NB‼️ recent shipments to some parts of the US (from here in England) have taken much longer than usual, one as long as six weeks. I've started having parcels tracked and traced as a precaution - this won't be at any extra cost to you - but even then, one parcel took three whole weeks to get to Kentucky. Thanks for your support and patience ☘️☘️☘️

Dear Friends,

All of us are atheists at some points in our lives - we find in ourselves no inclination to believe; much of the time, we live as if we did not.

But let us, by the example of the wise, be inspired to maintain something like a remembrance of God, an awareness that reminds us that we are loved and that the only worthy response to Love is love. Love for God, for ourselves, for others, for the mystery of the created world. And if not love, then perhaps gratitude for the awesome gift of existence.

Many have absorbed from our spiritual and intellectual cultures an in-built difficulty when it comes to the relationship between visual representations of our faith and the invisible transcendence of spiritual reality. And yet humans seem to yearn for the knowledge of just how language and sound and colour and form - or simply space-time - can express something of the nature of the Divine dimension beyond the surface. We do in fact have ample evidence of the relative success of our attempts to describe the indescribable, to bear witness to the dazzling truth without being blinded in the process. The iconography we have come to love, partly in liturgical life, inspires in us the hope of sharing its life-giving quality and the visual impact it tends to have on eyes too conditioned by images of transience and egocentrism.

Our nature is such that we yearn for Eternal truth, and our yearning is bound up with a thirst for Divine beauty and its Source. We cannot help the desire for perfection and completeness that is written into our souls.. Iconography has become for many contemporary pilgrims a homecoming, a reorientation, a heavenly lifeline.

We hope you find these images inspiring. Our belief is that they sow and nourish the seed described in Dostoyevsky's maxim - BEAUTY WILL SAVE THE WORLD. And how could it be otherwise?
It is in this sense that icons are vital to the Eastern Orthodox Christian faith : the Holy Trinity, the Angels, the Son of God incarnate - Jesus Christ, His Mother Mary the Blessed Virgin, the countless grace-filled Saints and a host of historical events - all these are represented as eternal spiritual realities, by means of a visual and prayer-filled vocabulary that is not of this transitory world... hence the purpose of the sacred tradition of iconography in the Christian East.

OUR MISSION is to contribute to making this holy beauty available, especially to those sensitive souls in whom the ring of its truth echoes loud and clear. In order to do this, we have sourced well-known and less well-known images from various visual traditions: Byzantine, Russian, Serbian, Ethiopic, Coptic... Copyright enquiries are undertaken where possible where icons are privately owned or not in the public domain.

NB
Prices depend mainly on the size and finish of the icons, as well as the quality of the reclaimed wood. Please never hesitate to contact us with any queries... these icons are meant to be affordable, and we will happily consider reducing the suggested price of an icon. We all have a responsibility towards reclaiming sacred space.

All listed icons (unless in current stock and ready to send immediately) can be mounted to order, and shipped within 2 weeks. Postal rates reflect average costs. If you feel they need adjusting, again, please contact us.

Most icons are A5/A6, some are A4 or slightly larger, some A7 or even smaller. Depending on print quality, we can produce to specified dimensions. The border paintwork traditionally ranges between deep red and rusty brown, depending on the palette of the image itself. Sometimes the natural look of the wood works well, and this can be enhanced by staining. (Again, please specify any preferences.) A length of string is fitted to all icons for centred hanging.

You may already possess a well-loved icon print that would benefit from being mounted - we are always happy to oblige... where possible we work to your specifications (eg wood, thickness, border-width), so do include these in your enquiry.

We look forward to hearing from you. Meanwhile, let us be blessed by the Beauty of the Face of God.

Sincerely,
Anthony & Co.

xXx
