The Wedding Feast of Cana Icon Wall PlaqueThe Wedding Feast of Cana Icon Wall Plaque is a traditional religious icon that beautifully depicts the scene of the Wedding Feast at Cana where Christ performed His first miracle. The The Wedding Feast of Cana icon was originally produced by Mount Tabor Studios, a team of iconographers headed by Fr. Abbot Damian Higgins, who have collectively produced over 1,000 icons in the past 20 years. Many of the icons are painted using the traditional method of egg tempera and exhibit the influence of various schools, including Greek, Byzantine, and Russian iconography.
Icon Symbolism and Meaning
If one looks closely, the icon is notably inscribed in various places.To the left of Mary are the Greek letters MP ?Y, an abbreviation for the title "Mother of God." The letters in Christs halo (OWN) are a Greek abbreviation as well. They roughly translate to "I AM" or "I AM WHO IS," conveying Christs connection with the First Person of the Trinity. In between Mary and Jesus, we see the Christogram IC XC which represents the Greek words for Jesus Christ (???O??C).
The icon also possesses some rich visual symbolism as well. The stars on the head and shoulders of Marys cloak represent Her virginity before, during, and after the birth of Christ. The scroll in Christs hand symbolically conveys Christs role as Teacher. The gesture of Christs right hand is perhaps a sign of Him bestowing his blessing.
