Stunning Contemporary Icon of St. Michael …

This particular icon was created by joining different types of stone together, called an opus sectile icon. You can see the artist’s process here at Orhtodox Arts Journal. It’s really quite exquisite the way this icon strikes a beautiful balance between ornate detail and simplicity.
