The Main one...

Here's the shrine in the Living Room. We're to go very lightly on the walls... so I've created a shrine that hangs between the two bookcases. It's made of birch and pine, stained "pecan".



Top to bottom, left to right:

The Incarnation and the Final Judge,
St Raphael, All Saints, St John Chrysostom.
St Gregory of Nyssa, a tiny all Angels above St Demerious the Myrrh Gusher, then St John of San Francisco (thanks, Matt!)

Underneath the kefiah that covers the shelf there is another shelf for incense, charcoal, etc. There is also a small box (not pictured) for candles. It's not pictured because I don't have enough sand and we're out of small beeswax tapers anyway. Need to get some more. But I don't live in SF and can't find any here. Any one know any sources for small (4-6") beeswax tapers?

Regarding a comment that Jim N made (on the earlier icon corner post) about icons in picture frames... well, the wooden prints that one gets at a shop are, really, the same thing: they are paper pictures attached to a frame. They are not "real" icons (painted, oiled, gold, etc). I don't think that's important. So why bother paying $12 or $50 or more for a bit of decupoge that you can replicate with any decent colour printer, some photo quality paper (only if needed) and some gold frames from Goodwill?

Update (2124) Found 'em! These seem better than the ones I used to purchase in SF. But I found those as well! Googled "beeswax birthday" :-)

Very attractive and ingenious, Huw!

"...that you can replicate with any decent colour printer..."

What sites have the best collections of icons suitable for printing? I've been trying to find a certain representation of the Virgin Glykophilousa. Thanks!

RW: The OCA website has the best ones by far.

That is truly a beautiful shrine and an ingenious answer to a common problem.

Do you remember the woman named M. who told us about the weeping icon? As I remember the story, she had just finished complementing an abbot for his monasterys beautiful iconography and remarked how she didn't care for paper icons. Then he showed her a weeping icon, printed on paper. She told the story to us right after I said I didn't like paper icons. Now I have lots of paper icons. (I find that calendars are good sources.)None of them are weeping, though.

I do remember that story! Also when I asked Fr V if I should bring in my "Internet" Icons for blessing, he said "the image is the blessing"
