    …And what is a dormition?

    • Andrij Maday says:

      Excellent question Janet!

      In Latin “dormire” means “to sleep”. This Icon depicts the the Dormition, the “Falling Asleep” (or earthly end) of the Mother of God!

  2. Ellen says:

    I didn’t know what a Dormition was either. Glad you answered that.

    Very beautiful, can’t wait to see the finished work.

  3. Jan D says:

    Thanks for the explanation for us non icon trained folks.
    I got most of my teaching through song, skits and Bible reading…not much Latin in there!

  4. Very unusual icon, but at the same time
    quite the beautiful workmanship.

  5. dzvinya says:

    When you do your iconography, do you get “close and personal” with your subjects? I would think that you do, since it is such a long procedure.

    • Andrij Maday says:

      I do actually. I tend to read about them and study them.

      This holds true not only with the iconography, but with all the work that I do – regardless of subject matter.
