Iconography

This section is under construction.
Here will be posted materials telling about the icons.

On this page you can see icons created by Archimandrite Ambrose Gorelov. Father Ambrose paints in the traditional Byzantine style. He has returned the Comnenian Technique of iconography to our island; it is a technique we come across in many ancient shrines in Cyprus (such as: Panagia tou Araka, Panagia tou Asinou, Monastery of St. John Lampadistis, and others). The most significant point is that the technique Father Ambrose uses is inspired by works from the 12th century, without being at all imitative, and is therefore, a technique that is ecclesial in its composition using, however, contemporary methods and expressions. Many iconographers in Cyprus have been inspired by the earthy colors he uses, by the austerity and devotion his work expresses, as well as by the holiness of purpose, which is revealed. Qualities such as abstemiousness, simplicity, holiness of purpose, and reductionism are, above all, qualities of which people today are in great need.
