    Hand-Painted Icons?

    Those "hand painted" icons are serigraphs - and priced at nearly double the price that I've seen them for, so I'd take a pass on them if I were you. It's quite shameless of these folks to pass them off as the real deal.    :(

    Lutheran eucharistic theology

    Depictions of the six-winged seraphim

    I did try searching on google using the words you suggested, but there were very few hits and none of them was what I was looking for, but I thank you for the suggestion.  :) I'm interested in seeing how the seraphim are depicted in iconography, like in photos of church interiors, etc. Anyone...

    Depictions of the six-winged seraphim

    I've been trying to find pictures/images of the six-winged seraphim as depicted in iconography online, but haven't had a whole lot of luck thus far. Anyone have any links or know where I can go to find some?  ???
