Christ said to the Apostles, "I am the Vine, you are the branches." This icon depicts this saying literally, illustrating the important truth that the Apostles were united to Christ, as we all must be.
Windows into heaven
Posted by Carole Crino on May 16th 2019
I am a Roman Catholic and I pray with and through icons. The first time I encountered icons, I was on retreat. I bought a few icons and had my husband put them up, and I exclaimed: "These are windows into heaven!" I now have many reproductions of icons, and one written icon.
This "I am the Vine" icon is truly in a class by itself. It visually calls out to follow the Lord. The colors are vivid and the figures are meticulously drawn. The icon wonderfully reflects what Christ said, "I am the vine, and you are the branches." Visually, He seamlessly flows out of the Tree of Life. Each branch leads to, and wraps around, an Apostle, creating the sense each Apostle is the fruit of that branch, and, by extension, of Christ. The strong roots of the Tree/Christ nourish the fruit/Apostles, as Christ nourishes us, and is the source of our life. The image beautifully conveys we cannot live without Him.
Physically, the icon is extremely well made, from high quality wood. It is impeccably finished, with vibrant colors. I am thrilled with this icon, and I've already bought additional copies to give as gifts. I am so happy to have discovered this site.

i have always admired this particular icon when I saw it in other peoples homes. I was so happy to receive this particular version from Legacy Icons. It is unique and the colors leap out at you. The quality is excellent. I am looking forward to purchasing more icons from here in the future.

This is an incredibly beautiful icon of our Lord Jesus Christ and His Disciples. We ordered it to display during the Fast of the Apostles. Great quality product as usual and wonderfully written icon. My big order was rushed, and Legacy Icons got it to me a day earlier than I asked for! What Great Service!
Peaceful and true

This is a lovely icon which reveals the sacred truth that the LORD GOD is our vine, and those who follow Him are the branches. The colors are vivid and the message clear. A wonderful choice indeed!

I am speaking pleased with my new icon! The quality is first rate. But the fantastic customer service sets Legacy Icons apart from other companies. They treat your order (no matter how small) as if it's the most important order they've ever had!

We got this icon to put in our garden. It looks great and I love all the options to protect the icon, like the cross bar and wax.
This piece is beautiful and the artist an amazing talent.

I received this icon less than a week after ordering it. The colors are not quite as vibrant as the picture on the website but not far off! We love it and surround it with our christmas cards each year.
