Eastern Orthodox Iconography

Growing up as  Ukrainian Orthodox, I often looked upon and pondered the icons that were literally everywhere. The composition and actual illustration of these pieces was incredible. This started my fascination with iconography and still to this day fuels it. Hopefully these images will get someone else hooked as well.

Here is a collection of some excellent pieces to give a wide example.

The Extrodinary Artwork Of Jamie Beck

 

I can’t tell you just how taken aback I was when I first saw these photographs. Jamie Beck has taken still images and put a modern stereogram into them that trully breathes new life into these photographs. Some of the women in the photographs feel so real it is creepy. I encourge everyone to pay Jamie a visit on her blog, http://fromme-toyou.tumblr.com/.
