Understanding the Icons of Holy Week

To mark the events of Holy Week and Eastertide some weeks ago, we followed the events of that week through a series of icons, beginning with the Entry of Christ into Jerusalem (Palm Sunday).
Jonathan Pageau, an iconographer who works by carving in wood and stone, has reflected on the Easter cycle of icons and the connections between them. His reflections were published in the Orthodox Arts Journal.
