As the didactic says, this is Christ the Pantocrator or the judge who points the way. He doesn't look cheerful, but the serious business of weighing souls was impressed on the faithful by his expression.
Another blurry shot.....this one of 3 saints whose robes, and the pattern in them caught my eye. The way the fabric pattern is absolutely flat without any hint that it covers a 3-dimensional form really amazes and delights me.
Last, another of the collages. All the reverence and narrative in the icons bled into the kind of imagery I used. Lynn provided all the animal images that became strangely totem-like, I had the saint's images in my packet of papers and the flat checked pattern came from a kind waitress who brought me a pile of the beautiful paper used to line the bread basket.
