I don't know if this technically counts, but lord have mercy!

The wife of the husband who did that as a “joke” would not be in my opinion acting unreasonably if she were to divorce him.  This image also poses a graphic warning about the dangers for Orthodox who marry heretics.

I mean uncovered hair of the Theotokos:



Of course, it's westernised a lot, but even so, quite unusual:


A detail: I used to think that in the Hades there were some white unamed things (bones?)....


The flag over the Mystical Supper (patronage of Romania?)

^^ there is one icon in Poland (from the Holy Mount Jawor) where the Holy Theotokos has Her hair covered, but the head scarf is transparent:

Thank you!

What is the story of Mt. Jawor?
During the interwar period on this mount there were apparitions of the Holy Theotokos. After this such icon was made:

 

After these apparitions some people were healed, also from the demonic possesions. One of the women heard a few times in her dreams the Theotokos, saying that Lemkos would be expelled from their homeland and that the chapel on the mount would be abandoned and desacralised for a few decades. And all these things happend (Action Vistula - Akcja Wisła, communist period in Poland...).

The problem is that the apparitions took place in the period that Lemkos were coming back step by step to Orthodoxy; so, some of them that time were becoming Orthodox, while other were still for some times Greek Catholic (in the end the majority became Orthodox). So, there is a conflict between the Polish Orthodox Church and the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church. A few months ago the UGCC got rights to the church on the mount. But the Orthodox Church had got earlier, as a kind of compensation, some terrain on the mount. So, the Orthodox Liturgies are now on a field altar (I mean, under a tent), until the time the construction of the Orthodox church begins and ends. Before the trial the church on the mount was being used by both communities. But, thanks to God, the Holy Theotokos appeared on the ground that belong to the Orthodox Church, not in the place that (now Greek Catholic) chapel is built.

this is made by an orthodox layperson and is an icon but uses a more casual art style and they got the halo wrong and wrote W O N when it should be O W N

There's an error in the halo, but it's not the order of the letters. Icons which follow Greek tradition are more likely to have the order as W O N (omega at the top), icons painted in Slavic tradition mainly have the letters as O W N (omega on the left).

The error in the halo is in the lines which make up a cross around Christ's head. There should be one single line and a double line making up the cross, nine lines altogether. The number represents the nine ranks of angels and bodiless powers who serve Him.

That must be the Theotokos in the thing the angel is holding on the left. Is that St. Philip on the right?
