Part of the La Salle College High School collection, this icon was specifically envisioned to honor grandparents.
Jesus and Mary are visiting with Sts. Joachim and Anne. St. Joachim, visibly failing, drawn and tired, sits in a chair, with teenage Jesus is sitting across from him. Behind the two seated male figures are the two standing women, St. Anne and Our Lady.
Jesus is looking intently at St. Joachim. In that sort of half-understanding of reality teenagers can manifest, he senses that Joachim may not be around for much longer. Sts. Joachim and Anne and the Blessed Mother are focused in turn on Jesus. All this echoes the glances in traditional Byzantine icons like that of the Trinity. They are impressed and perhaps a little surprised at the adult man he is becoming.
Print on Fine Art Papers - Our fine art paper prints (also known as Giclee) are ordered by galleries, individual artists and photographers. The papers and inks are not only archival but use some of the most accurate print technology for full color prints.
Gatorboard® Rigid Prints - You artwork or photography printed directly on 1/3" or 1/2" Gatorboard® panels. Gatorboard® is a similar but more rigid and sturdier than foamcore. Because it is so light, it can be easily used in frames or hung on the wall with velcro command strips. Printed with UV-inks directly to the panel, Gatorboard® prints are both smudge and scratch resistant. These prints can be placed directly into the frame without glass giving you a beautiful glare free print.
