Jesus Christ: The Mystical Church
This image, taken from a drawing in the Rudder (a book listing the canons of the Church), depicts Christ at the rudder of a ship. On the ship are the Apostles and Hierarchs of the Church, as well as the Mother of God. At the front of the ship sits St. Nicodemus of the Holy Mountain who compiled the Rudder. This icon depicts the Church as an ark of salvation led by Christ but filled with His holy ones.
