The visitors of the Novosibirsk temples are being offered a new look at the icons – “to see them” to the touch. Volumetric images were created in the workshop of the Nikolsky church in Nizhnyaya Yeltsovka. A project called “The carved relief will reveal the faces of the saints” is the first of its kind. Carved icons of the Savior, Mother of God, St. Nicholas, and other saints are the work of Father Andrey Fedorov. They say he works on the advice of Michelangelo: with a wooden blank he just removes all unnecessary part from. Icons will be transferred to the cathedrals of the Novosibirsk Diocese, where any visitors can touch them. Based on materials by nsktv.ru.
