Artist's description:

From my Angels and Icons series, this is my second icon of Saint Christopher. Saint Christopher is recognised by various Christian religions - Anglicanism, Eastern Orthodoxy, Lutheranism, Oriental Orthodoxy, Roman Catholicism. In the orthodox tradition, he is usually shown as a Cynocephalus, meaning a dog-headed being that was extremely tall. These beings are thought to have lived in caves and have traded with human beings. My modern icon series keeps some traditional elements but isn't bound by tradition or rules and includes other symbols and even at times composites the stories around the subject being featured. You can read more about Saint Christopher and the legends and stories surrounding him in my article at the following link ->
