Mary, Christ, angels, saints

I put this up on the other blog yesterday for All Saints' Day, and although I don't want to double-post much, I can't resist posting this icon here, because I know some readers here will like it. Also, it is just beautiful.

It is Ethiopian, from the 17th century. Full reference info at Race, Justice, and Love.

To enlarge and see even more of the gorgeous detail, go to the other blog and click on the photo. (This one won't enlarge, for some reason.)
