Thank you, and the same to you!

A beautiful icon, BTW.

Whoa. Cool icon! dynamic texture and color. Looks like He's already in the coffin. Just wondering...are there any nativity icons that reference the second coming?

Speaking of icons, I just noticed your pint. The best thing about that image is the empty one next to it.

Yes I've noticed the Eastern iconography of the Nativity often foreshadows Christ's death. The swaddling clothes reminds of how He would be bound on a cross. In the gospel of Matthew the gift of myrrh was a similar foreshadowing, myrrh being a royal embalming oil that was a prophecy of the death and burial of the earthly body of Christ.

I guess Christmas is as appropriate a time as any to leave my first comment. So merry Christmas, and may God protect you from spammers and trolls.
