Hi All,

One of the members on this forum, though the name eludes me, has an avatar that looks to be of far-eastern decent, perhaps Japanese, of the Theotokos and Christ. I've always had an interest in "Oriental" Orthodox art, and the history of the churches in that area. Sadly, not much information is available.

If anyone has any websites about the Church in that area or of Far-Eastern icons, I'd be much appreciative to see them.

Thanks,
Will

Might I suggest for your interest (although they may not be exactly what you're after):


http://www.orthodoxwiki.org/Coptic_Orthodox_Church_in_Japan
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_Orthodox_Church
http://www.orthodox-jp.com/nagoya/english.htm
http://www.orthodox-jp.com/nagoya/index.html (In Japanese)
http://www.allstates-flag.com/fotw/flags/rel-orjp.html

Try emailing coptic_circle@yahoo.co.jp as well but I don't know if it's still in use.

Hope that helped a little. Know the fellow you mean with the avatar also.
