Icons


The crumbling walls of Saint-Petersburg, whose sinking back to mere matter is documented by Sasha Terebenin, are used as new basic material by Vadim Bo to create modern icons. Their relationship is well shown by the fact that the images make the most natural impression there where they have been taken from: on the walls of the courtyards of Saint-Petersburg.














The walls of the city were decorated with every kind of precious stone.
The first was jasper, the second sapphire,
the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald,
the fifth sardonyx, the sixth carnelian,
the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl,
the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase,
the eleventh jacinth, the twelfth amethyst. (Rev 21:20)
