This is not an icon.DeniseDenise said:Mor Ephrem said:But the icon basically says that the angel Raphael is the mother of Tobias, who is the mother of a fish and a dog, right?HaydenTE said:Well, that's Tobias, not Tobit. And you're right. Br. Lentz's icon is the only one I have ever found for sale depicting Tobias. Although I find the stylistic dissonance between the saints themselves and the animals with them displeasing, I wouldn't go far as much to say it's bad on a theological level. Compared to some of the other work of Br. Lentz, this icon is very orthodox.RaphaCam said:This icon looks wrong, not only for the doggy. However, I looked for it because my priest himself said St. Tobit was portrayed with his pet.
I didn't find many icons of his anyway.
Not just -a- fish....that really looks like the almighty Salmon, possibly a Coho.
Was Tobias Alaskan?
