CHRIST PANTOKRATOR icon from the Monastery of Karakallou, Mount Athos, Greece.

Dionysius of Fourna, author of The Painter's Manual (c.1670-after 1744) was obviously no mean painter.  This beautiful icon of our Lord (120 cm x 93 cm) is from the iconostasis of the Monastery of Karakallou, Mount Athos.  They published a book of their icons which you can get here.  We don't just need to hear Christ we also need to see and to contemplate Him.
