The Birth of Christ:
The icon is from the Panayia Agrou Eleousa church, placed high in the iconostasis in the section of The Twelve Great Feasts (Dodekaorton). It is one of a number of icons created by the painter Solon, or Solomos Frangoulides, between 1932 and 1934.
In terms of style, the icons cannot be characterised as Byzantine or western. They are the result of the artist's freedom of thought and imagination. For this reason they display a unique beauty and serenity that can be enojoyed by all.
