11B01 Meeting of the Lord - 20th c. 8x10
The Meeting of the Lord in the Temple (also called the Presentation) is one of the Great Feasts of the Orthodox Church, celebrated on February 2. The feast occurs precisely 40 days after the feast of Nativity and recalls the presentation of the Christ child in the temple in Jerusalem by his holy parents, the Righteous Joseph and the Most Holy Theotokos as is described in the Gospel of Luke. Christ was received in the arms of the elder Simeon, who then prayed, "Now let Thy servant depart in peace... for I have seen Thy salvation." Excellent bridal shower gift, reminding the parents to take the infant to the priest on his 40th day.

Excellent baptismal gift! St. John has his right hand on Jesus' head to baptize Him. A personification of the sea and the Jordan is seen in the water, for "the sea saw it and fled, Jordan was turned back." (Psalm 113). Celebrated on January 6th. Every year on Epiphany day (by the Old Calendar) the Jordan River reverses its course when the Greek Orthodox bishop prays and drops the cross in the water.

11K11 Resurrection: the Descent of the Lord into Hades 8x10
Based on ancient prototypes, our icon of The Resurrection shows Christ's triumphant descent into Hades after His death on the Cross on Great Friday. As described in the Apocryphal Gospel of Nicodemus, we see Him freeing those souls held in the bondage of death, and also bestowing freedom on those righteous souls who were as yet unable to enter Paradise. An icon of hope, it should be in every home.
11L12-- The Myrrhbearing Women and the Angel at the Empty Tomb 8x10
The Myrrhbearers are the women who unlike the apostles, risked their lives and went to the Tomb of Christ carrying myrrh and other spices to anoint His dead body.
