Christ The Teacher Icon in Wooden Shrine with Plexiglass, Faux Crystals and Crystal Incense.
The Christ is presented in half-length blessing with his right hand and holding an open Gospel Book in his left hand. The blessing is the traditional Orthodox manner of blessing with the thumb and the next two fingers pointing up and the last two fingers pointing down.
On either side of Christ's are an "IC" and "XC" which are the beginning Greek letters for "Jesus Christ
Conquers." In the nimbus (halo) you find three Greek letters, which look like "W O N" and form the Greek word that translates to "There is only One God."
Christ is seated blessing with His right hand and holding an open book of Gospels. The open gospel book verse is Mathew 11:28:30
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
Below the icon
in each shrine are a few grains of "incense" as a symbol of our prayer - "Let my prayer arise as incense before Thy site." Each shrine is enhanced with red (symbolizing Christ's Resurrection) crystals!
SIZE: 5 1/2" x 4"
On the back side the shrine has a hook for hanging.
