Interesting Icon

For those of you who are interested in icons, I spotted this one on Mark Shea's blog.

It's a Greek Orthodox icon about abortion; I don't think I've seen anything like it.

That icon is incredible! There's so much symbolism and meaning behind all the different parts. I especially like the lower left part of the icon that shows the unmarried woman holding her baby and at the same time carrying the burden of the Cross. To me it shows that even though the right thing to do isn't always the easiest, it is what God would want.

I've seen that before and it's really interesting. Iconography is pretty intense.
