About Byzantine Icon
"In recent times, only beauty will save the world," said one of the great Christian writers. He is referring to a propensity for rationality that prevents us from perceiving God's Truth. Then the only chance is our natural desire for beauty, in which we find God's image as the seal of His creation.
After the great destruction that affected the true art of the first Apostles and the Holy Fathers, the Age of Renaissance brought a materialistic and naturalistic trend in religious art that deeply affected orthodox icons, and iconography began to move away from the true traditions of the Holy Fathers and Apostles.
The Byzantine icon testifies humility and depth, the spiritual reality of the Prototype. It is a religious artistic testament of the Holy Apostles and the Holy Fathers. Any other, naturalistic vision is a break with the Orthodox tradition and the discovery of a direction alien to Christianity. The Byzantine icon speaks about the deep mysteries of our souls and awakens in them a desire for a divine model.
