Orthodox Stone Art Work

One of the artistic characteristics of the Orthodox Church, found in a number of Greek islands, Constantinople and Macedonia - Northern Greece – (to name a few) is the stone art work found normally on the grounds of the Church, whether they are on the floor or on the walls. These artistic works primarily depict the cross, the symbol of Christ (XP), a fish, or any of the ancient Christian symbols. Below are a number of examples from Aegina, the island where Saint Nectarios was Bishop, where he lived and where he eventually died.
