One of my favorite religious works of art is an Icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa.
I saw the original in person and it was a very powerful experience.

Wish I could ,but it would get into that "sticky" area of religious discussions. Not sure how the two could be civilly separated. Amazing artworks done to a religious theme over the centuries, aside from Icons being forbidden in many monotheistic religions.


Any way here is one of my more favorite renditions:

religion isn't allowed in the forum.

Religion is allowed Mike…just not the discussion of it. If I say "Have a nice day" that could be my religious greeting.

Actually, a cool discussion would be how religious figures are portrayed in art from cultures that are not indigenously esoteric to the nationality of the figure represented.

Not a favorite icon, but this is one of mine, & I just wanted to enter the show. ; )

This one may seem a little 'strange' but it is some of my religion-art.

Both of these were sold long ago.

Wingsdomain Art,

your image entitled Angels in the Sky reminded me of a story I read about
Padre Pio ..

"There are many stories concerning Allied pilots who attempted to bomb San Giovanni but were stopped by an apparition of a
'monk' standing in the air with his arms outstretched." "There are fliers who swore that they had sighted a figure in the sky, sometimes normal
size, sometimes gigantic, usually in the form of a monk or priest. The sightings were too frequent and the reports came from too many sources to be totally
discounted. "

Lovely works... I don't have any icons in the strict sense of the word, but here is one of my images that's the closest. This is a huge 175 year old window in the front of one of the Churches I attend Mass at:

I don't consider it an Icon for me... but I do know there are a great many that do consider it that way. I am intrigued by the mystery of it.

yeah i remember the last time we had a religious thing pop up here by bill and it wasn't allowed then either.

Posted by: Tony Murray on 11/29/2012 - 2:59 PM

Well so far it's been about art.

 

Posted by: Gene Gregory on 11/29/2012 - 3:08 PM

That is true Tony... It's not about religion, it's about art. Some of the oldest and best art in the world was inspired by religion.

yeah that other thread supposedly was also.

This piece has sold here on FAA and has a religious tone I suppose. Looking over the images I have on here I notice that most of the "religious" based photos I have posted are related to a faith I'm not even a part of (The Mormon Church).

I took a photo of this Religious lawn ornament from the street. It was located directly next to the steps to the house which was extremely close to the sidewalk. I used Photoshop to obscure the background and steps to the door by duplicating the shrubbery from the right, flipping it horizontally, and pasting it on the left side with some cloning, shading, and gradient colors to hide the house siding.

I love photographing churches and their surroundings knowing what an important role they play in the lives of those who attend. These are churches in North Central Louisiana.
