Order your own orthodox icon

The iconostas is a border, decorated with icons.It devides the altar and the naos, or the sky-church and the earth-church. The iconostas holds a prime importance in the interior of the orthodox temple. Most important and most significant are the icons of St Mary with the child, Jesus Christ, St Jhon the Baptist and the patron of the church. These icons are the biggest in the iconostas, because of their significance. They are called "King's icons". Between them is "The King's door", with the images of St Mary and Archangel Gabriel - a symbol of the St Annunsiation. Absolutely important is the Chrucifictin of Jesus Christos, that is on the top of the iconostas, a symbol of the self-sucrifice and martyr's death of the Christ, our God. Between the "King's icons and the Chrucifictin are the other icons devided in two rows - "the apostolic row" and "the festival row". There are the scenes and the saints, columns of the christian faith and school.
