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.
This is a beautiful Icon. I bought the 8x10 size.
I could probably only suggest the clarity be enhanced a bit. Otherwise it’s beautiful.
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!
