The "Lord's" image is the image of the Lord Jesus Christ. However, it is on this icon that the fragment of the "waist" image with the same name is presented on which the Savior, dressed in bright red clothes - "chiton" and dark-blue cloak-cloak - "gimatiy", is depicted sitting on the heavenly throne; the right hand of the Savior is in the gesture of a two-fold blessing, and in the left hand He holds the revealed gospel. And the stakes of Christ - the incarnate God of the Word - occupy the main place both in the Orthodox church and in the house of the believer. The canonical image of God in the human form was confirmed in the 9th century: "Well-bodied." With shifted eyebrows, fine-eyed, with a long nose, fair hair, inclined, humble, beautiful body color, with a dark beard, wheat-colored in appearance, appearance, with long fingers, good-natured, sweet speech, mildly meek, silent, patient. " Early Christians portrayed Christ as a lamb, in the form of a fish, in the form of a good shepherd who carried a sheep on his shoulders. Later, these symbolic images were banned. At present, there are two types of images of the Savior: 1) in the form of the Almighty and the Judge - King of the Kingdoms; 2) in the form in which He was among people and performed His ministry (including in the form of a baby or a boy). Sometimes you can also see images of Christ in the form of an angel. But if the ways of depiction are so different, is it easy to learn on the icons of the Savior? Yes, it is easy - thanks to one detail: the image of Christ has a crossed halo. What is a halo? The word is translated from Latin as "cloud", "fog", "halo". The nimbus is the symbol of the uncreated Divine light that the Savior showed to the disciples on Mount Tabor: "And he was transfigured before them: and his face shone like the sun, and his clothes became white as light." The nimbus on the icons of the Savior also has the inscribed Cross. Inside, there are three Greek letters that convey the words of God, "I am Jehovah," spoken to Moses. Through the image of the halo, we confess in Christ two natures - the Divine and the human. The iconographer writes the Face of Christ in the likeness of a human face, and this is the dogma that Christ is "the perfect man in humanity." Nimbus conveys that Christ and "the perfect God by the Divine." Shipping: international shipping takes 15-45 days (more than depending on the country).
