Learn All About Ikons, Their Meaning and How They Are Made

For almost 2000 years the Christian ikon has always been the object of prayer and contemplation for believers. In the past few decades it has also become the realm of collectors. Magnificent new exhibitions of ikons and the art of Byzantium have vastly increased interest in them. This site was created to help the novice learn about ikons. New additions to the site are "Ikon Finder" and "Ikon Gallery". Ikon Finder helps you to find sources for both antique and modern ikons. Ikon Gallery is an expanding compilation of ikons with pictures and descriptions of famous and less-well known ikons. We hope you will enjoy the site and come back often for more!
