Icon - Christ "The Good Shepherd"

Icon - Christ "The Good Shepherd"

$39.95
More Info

One of the most popular and beloved Christian Orthodox Icons from the most ancient times is the Orthodox icon of the Good Shepherd. As you look at Christ beautifully holding a sheep on his shoulder you are instantly taken to the Gospel of St. John, chapter 10, “I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd lays down his life for the sheep..I am the Good Shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me.”

This Orthodox icon is one of the most ancient as it adorned the catacombs of ancient Rome where the persecuted Christians celebrated their Liturgy. The image of the Good Shepherd is the most common of the symbolic representations of Christ found in Early Christian art in the Catacombs of Rome, before Christian imagery could be made explicit. The image continued to be used in the centuries after Christianity was legalized in 313. Initially it was probably not understood as a portrait of Jesus, but a symbol like others used in Early Christian art, and in some cases may also have represented the Shepherd of Hermas, a popular Christian literary work of the 2nd century. However, by about the 5th century, the figure more often took on the appearance of the conventional depiction of Christ, as it had developed by this time, and was given a halo and rich robes, as on the apse mosaic in the church of Santi Cosma e Damiano in Rome, or at Ravenna (right). Orthodox Christian icons of the Good Shepherd often include a sheep on his shoulders, as in the Lukan version of the Parable of the Lost Sheep.

Through Legacy Icons you can order your own professionally replicated image of this most beloved and ancient representations of our Lord Jesus Christ today.

Icon - Creation of the World

Icon - Creation of the World

$49.95
More Info

This stunning icon depicts the Six Days of Creation in one single incredible icon.

The starry firmament above contains the sun, moon, and stars. The border of the sky is marked by a rainbow, which in iconography symbolizes God's divine power and authority. The seas below are gathered into one place, bordered by dry land. The seas teem with life, while the sky is filled with birds and the land contains numerous plants and animals. Adam, the first-created man, sits in his place, giving glory to God for all things.

The Lord Jesus Christ sits in an orb of divinity in the center, his arms outstretched in a gesture of blessing and authority. In Orthodox theology and iconography, it is the Word of God in particular who accomplishes the Creation of the world—as Genesis says, the Lord spoke all things into existence.

The Creation account is read four times each year in the Orthodox Church: on the eves of the greatest feasts of the Lord Jesus—the Nativity, Theophany, and Pascha—and during the first week of Great Lent.

This beautiful icon was painted by Bulgarian iconographer Georgi Chimev, exclusively for Legacy Icons.

Icon - Holy Trinity

Icon - Holy Trinity

$49.95
More Info

This icon is used in the Russian tradition for the feast of Pentecost, and in many churches it appears above the Holy Doors. It bears two meanings. 

On its surface, this icon depicts a scene from the Bible. The image of three angels grouped around a food-laden table is understood to illustrate the story of the Hospitality of Abraham (Gen. 18:1-8). Here Abraham had just been told by God that he and his wife, Sarah, though beyond childbearing age, were to be blessed with a son. Shortly thereafter, Abraham greeted three men—messengers from Heaven, but also guests in their own right and entitled to good treatment—who appeared on his doorstep. Abraham did all he could to make his holy visitors comfortable, and with Sarah’s help served them from the best provisions he could offer. The guests confirmed Abraham’s blessing. Consistent with a Scriptural interpretation, they are portrayed as angels. 

Second, while the icon does show the three messengers seated at Abraham’s table, icons like this one have come to be understood throughout Church history to be representations of the Holy Trinity, present even in the Old Testament covenant God made with Abraham. 

It is not necessary, though, to identify each angel in the icon as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Different versions of the icon may reconcile the question by different means—in some, one angel is clearly identifiable as the Son, and in others, which emphasize the unity of the three Persons of the Trinity, all three angels are identical.

Other icons, make the angels both united and unique. Sometimes the eyes of each angel are focused on the companion sitting to his right. The lines of their gazes form a triangle suggesting that, despite their separateness , they are united in one existence. Their placement above the Holy Doors, through which Holy Communion is brought out during the Divine Liturgy, furthers their connection to God’s becoming incarnate for our salvation and being present today in the Eucharist. The angels, unified around the feast, are partaking of Holy Communion themselves.

Also, while the three are otherwise identical to one another, they are clothed in different colors: one in red, one in blue, and one in green. These colors all have divine significance: red for active power and sacrifice for God’s purpose, blue to the contemplative depths and mysteries of God’s love and presence, and green for the peace and regeneration brought forth in communion between God and ourselves. The three colors, in both their meanings and appearance, complement and balance one another. Here balanced are the opposite tones of red-orange and blue, and midpoint in green: here is present the God who smote Sodom and Gomorrah, the God willing to have mercy on either city for the sake of one just citizen, and the God who delivered a child and heir to an aging couple long after they had accepted this was impossible; and, while we may not be able to pinpoint which figure is which, here are represented the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

More Info

This beautiful icon is a duplication of the original, painted by a Bulgarian iconographer in 2015. It is very similar to the prototype, although the sharp-eyed viewer will note the more traditional Byzantine style of this icon, especially in the faces.

Also known as "Theotokos of the Passion," the Perpetual Help icon has quite a storied past, stretching back to the time before the Great Schism. The original has been housed at the Church of Saint Alphonsus in Rome for centuries, under the protection of the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer, or the Redemptorists.

Icon - St. Michael the Archangel

Icon - St. Michael the Archangel

$39.95
More Info

An angel is a messenger of God, and a being which has stood before God and praised Him from a time before human comprehension. We cannot fully grasp what an angel's exact nature is, but we can understand an angel's function on earth. In icons, angels—especially the high-ranking Archangels—are depicted in an earthly form. All the angels are dressed as humans, in clothing accented with gold, the color of holiness and Heaven.

The Archangel Michael is the warrior of God, and in any given instance of heavenly warfare is likely present fighting for Him. In icons, Michael can always be identified by his soldier's attire, his armor, and the sword he wields. Also, Michael is frequently clothed in some shade of red. The color red can symbolize power, war, blood, and sacrifice: all appropriate to the angel who is engaged in warfare. His liturgical hymns refer to him as "the Commander of the bodiless hosts." He holds a flaming sword in one hand, a reference to the angel who guards the Garden of Eden in the book of Genesis, and an orb in his other hand, symbolizing his authority as the supreme Archangel.

This icon was painted by Fr. Theodore Koufos.

Icon - The Transfiguration of Christ

Icon - The Transfiguration of Christ

$49.95
More Info

Shortly before the Lord Jesus' life-giving Death, He wished to give His disciples an assurance of His Godhood and reveal to them the glory that awaits those who follow Him faithfully to the end. He took Peter, James, and John to the summit of Mount Tabor, and there He was transfigured, His face shining like the sun. The prophets Moses and Elijah also appeared, revealing that Christ is greater than the prophets and Lord of the living and the dead. Once again, as at His Baptism in the Jordan River, a voice came from heaven saying, "This is My beloved Son" (Matthew 17:5).

This was the fulfillment of the Lord's promise that "some standing here will not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in His Kingdom" (Matthew 16:28), for the fulness of the heavenly glory was revealed. This knowledge would strengthen the Apostles as they faced many persecutions for their preaching.

Icon - Wedding at Cana

Icon - Wedding at Cana

$39.95
More Info

The wonderful thing about icons of the Eastern Orthodox tradition are the depictions of how our Lord Jesus Christ comes and lives among us in everyday real life events. This beautiful icon depicting the story of Jesus at the Wedding of Cana performing his first public miracle, the changing of water into from John chapter 2, hails from the Stavronikita Monastery at Mt. Athos and is one of three Orthodox Christian icons that are traditionally held to speak of the dimensions of the Sacrament of Matrimony: Christ the Bridegroom Icon, the intimacy of wedded life in the icon of Sts. Joachim and Anna, and this beautiful image of Christ at the Cana Wedding.

This icon is a perfect gift for a wedding, anniversary or for any couple that shares their life with the Lord. Finally, each couple lives in relationship to “community,” pictured in the icon of the Wedding at Cana, with Christ and the Theotokos as the honored guests. The sacrament of marriage and the celebration that follows are always in the context of a community, showing that we do not live our married lives in isolation but as part of a larger body, which includes extended family, fellow parishioners, neighbors, colleagues and friends. If and when we are blessed with children, they become part of the community of the home, the fruit of the love of the husband and wife in Christ. All of this is shown so beautifully in this well loved Christian Orthodox icon.

When you are next invited to the Wedding of your family or friend, bless them with this deeply rich icon of Christ at Cana.
