Belarus Icon Painting on stamps

January 14th, 2014

The post of the Republic of Belarus issued the souvenir sheet "Belarus Saints. Triptych icon, 21st century" from the series "Belarus icon painting".

The triptych icon "Belarus Saints" is disposed in the icon-case of the lower chapel in honour of the Beheading of St. John the Baptist of the Memorial Church of All Saints in Minsk. This is the most complete picture of Belarus saints and martyrs at the time of making the icon (2011).

The middle part of the triptych pictures 16 Belarus saints venerated since ancient times in the view of the collective image of the Temple of God. On the left and right sides there are images of 60 Belarus martyrs resplendent in recent years.

The project was prepared in collaboration with the Memorial Church of All Saints and in memory of the victims who served the cause of national salvation.
