Despite the more casual, contemporary use of the word “icon,” icons are actually part of an ancient tradition of Christian art, inspirational paintings of sacred subjects that may date back to the time of the apostles, when St. Luke was said to have painted images of the Virgin Mary. Icons were particularly popular during the Byzantine Empire, when frescoes flourished, and the art of iconography spread across Europe to Russia.

Moonglow-statue-horizontal-FI

Moonglow Design Art Gallery unveiled sculptor Lorenzo Foncerrada’s latest (and wildest) effort “Big Loie,” which debuted Jan. 25 during a reception at the gallery, 5763 La Jolla Blvd. in Bird Rock. The larger-than-life statue is a fitting tribute to American dancer Loie Fuller, who took 1890s Paris by storm. A modern dance pioneer, Fuller often used grand silks and light effects in performances to dramatize her movements. The artist is asking $10,000 for the work; motorists and pedestrians can enjoy it for free until it’s sold.
