    Entombment of the Savior Orthodox Icon

    This icon represents taking the Savior down from the Cross and preparing Him for burial.  The particular style is Russian and the original would be from the 19th century.


    By being covered with the dust of the earth,
    You renew the nature of mortals, O Creator;
    The tomb and the winding-sheet reveal your deepest mystery, O Word;
    The noble counsellor renders present the counsel of your eternal Father,
    Who renews me in this wondrous way through you.
