Angelic Choir ( Patmos)
Here is a bright and colourful icon of the Angelic Choir which aways stands in the presence of God in Heaven and with their hearts always sing praises in love towards the Holy Trinity, God the father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
The Angels seen here represents all of the nine ranks of Bodiless Host: Angels, Archangels, Principalities, Authorities, Powers, Dominions, Thrones, Cherubim and Seraphim.
Christ is shown here as a young child and in a rondel with an open Gospel book before Him and resting on the wings of a six-winged Cherubim. As the Second Person of the Holy Trinity, He is always present before these angelic beings, and is the light of Heaven by which all of Heaven is illumined and all perception in these elevated and blessed realms is possible. As we say in the Nicean Creed, "Light of Light, true God of true God, by Whom all things were made".
This icon was produced in a small monastery of the Eastern Orthodox Church in the beautiful southwest of Wisconsin USA. It is believe to be the largest selection of historical icons produced and distributed anywhere in the world.
