Story & Symbolism:
Greek icons are the representation of the divine. A painted icon that depicts images or scenes from the bible shows veneration to what the icon represents. These sacred images are an expression of Orthodox faith and are used in expressing religious devotion.
Icons can represent Jesus Christ, the Virgin Mary, and the Saints or images and scenes from the Bible. They are being used so that we can look not only from the manifestations of the world but instead see the spiritual representation of the holy person or event.
