From ancient times icon painting served as a "language for the illiterates" – a special language with its own rules and symbols. For centuries icon painting masters perfected it trying to convey spiritual otherness by material means. That is why icon painting is still considered to be the most difficult and rare art, a combination of the human possibilities and the divine principle.
