Christ, the Sower


Material: Linden wood
Dimensions: 50 x 35 x 10 cm.
Location: Will be in Kent, Ohio, USA, currently in Thessaloniki, Greece
Completed: October 23, 2008
Particularities: This icon is the payment of the bet between Sophia and I. I lost the bet and obviously, she won. The bet was whether the word "papsarati" (not paparazzi) exists or not.
This icon will be in the upcoming exhibit from Dec. 2008, to Jan. 2009 at one of the Exhibit Halls of the Municipality of Thessaloniki. Then it will be travelling to Kent, Ohio, USA.

Congratulations,
This is a wonderful work and an inspiration to all of us.
I prefer your carving wood icons from the “commercial” ones.

Thank you Manoli. Your opinion means a great deal to me because you are art-oriented so when you say it is good, and I trust it is.
Thank you very much.

Hey, try making an icon where the saint is on one side and the surrounding area is on the other side almost as equal. Not with Jesus of course, no one is equal to Him except God Himself. Or does that break too much tradition? Just an idea. I hope you are feeling good.
