Animals in Orthodox Iconography

An Icon is being developed for the theme of animal suffering by Aidan Hart.  It will be displayed here once complete.  In the meantime i have added some others and Fr Andreas will give us more information in the not too distant future. The first, is a mosaic and taken from the garden of Kykkos Metochion in Nicosia, Cyprus.  If you have others please send them through to me at

Christ overlooking Adam’s naming of the animals.
