This well-known icon, painted in the 12th century at the Monastery of Saint Catherine at Mount Sinai, is an allegorical depiction of the Christian ascetic struggle. It is based on Saint John Climacus' seminal work, The Ladder of Divine Ascent.
We have a large version of this icon hanging up at Church. A friend of mine mentioned he was purchasing this icon in a large size to put at the bottom of his stairwell at his house. I thought that was a great idea! I've put it in a similar area in my house and it looks wonderful! The quality is excellent! I couldn't have asked for a better reproduction!
I was very pleased with the icon, "The Ladder of Divine Ascent! I ordered one with the wax covering. I think the wax covering gives it a nice look, as well as protect it from drying out.
I love the quality of this Icon. Now I feel I've got the companion to my copy of " Saint John Climacus, The Ladder of Divine Ascent" which of course, the Bible being the first this is the second greatest book ever, the rungs are the same numbers of steps, and you can even figure what rung some are falling from, from " the books " thirty steps. The original Iconographer knew this book well It gives me the SHIVERS !
