We were quite taken with these wonderful icon-style prints - the detail is gorgeous and the printing superb.
This icon on this card depicts the Descent into Hell - Jesus' gift of paradise to those who waited in the abode of the dead before the death and resurrection of Christ. Jesus is dressed in the white robe of resurrection. He calls Adam and Eve forth from their tombs, while at His feet, the shattered gates of hell and their keys fall into the abyss.
This icon is in the traditional Byzantine icon style and was created by Sister Marie-Paul Farran.
These lovely holy cards are a bit lighter weight than some others we offer, but the printing is absolutely outstanding. They are a convenient size for use as gifts or bookmarks - measuring 3-1/8 by 4-5/8 inches on heavy cream-colored paper. The back is blank except for a faint colophon at the bottom, leaving plenty of room for custom imprinting with your own message, or a place to write a note to a friend, or to inscribe an appropriate prayer.
