Mary in Iconography written in stone
The mother of Jesus called Mary is the most revealed and common image women find in the Christian Church Institution. She offers many deep mystical messages, without ever opening her mouth. My latest collection is a beautiful full Color Book; Mary in Iconography, second edition to share with readers, it is a Christmas meditation on the many faces of Mary.
Icons Speak: Beginning with Mary
I find it ironic that Christian mystics, mostly men, have spoken and expanded the spiritual understanding of God for nearly two thousand years and, in doing so, have controlled and shaped our society. Mary has not spoken, making our understanding of her elusive. Mary is a woman who, by her human act, gave birth to the most transcendent truth which is love. This is by far the very thing the world needs for its healing. The book explores three classic versions of Mary iconography, the Theorokos, Panagia and Hodegetria. My Beautiful full Color Book; Mary in Iconography illustrates Mary’s journey, receiving what was given, nurturing what she created and releasing her son into the world for our benefit. The idea of yoking these three pro-type images reflects a humanitarian attitude towards Creation: we too nurture what we create, and have the power to release it to the world.
Let us Love Creation
Orthodox style icons of the Virgin Mother speak volumes about the eternal communication between the love of a mother and that mystery of love which abides in us all. This collection of Mary icons captures the great mysteries of the Madonna, her beauty as well as her message. The collection covers a wide range of imagination in each image, contemporary versions inspired by their historical origin. Miller’s fascination with the Madonna images evolves within the two realms; tradition and contemporary spirituality, as they merge here in word and visual representation. Classic iconography has influenced this comprehensive collection of 32 images of Beautiful full Color Book; Mary in Iconography. 8.5” x 8.5” Paperback, 42 pages.
