"In order to accommodate the sensibilities of the Orthodox icon painter, Mary is shown pointing to the word 'Heart'"

With all due respect, no Orthodox Christian would mistake this painting for an Orthodox icon.

I very much enjoyed reading this post. I hadn't really realized or thought about it, that the Orthodox iconographer does not paint the heart (because he feels it too personal). I liked their "word around" in this regard.:) I love icons, this one is so beautiful, and I have added it to our Blessed Virgin Mary Slide Show. Thank you!
