Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me

The icon painting style created to depict the saints and Christ is aimed at displaying a different reality. Therefore, in the icon, the portrait resemblance of a saint to a person who actually lived once is not in principle, since it reflects a transformed person who is in the upper world. But the saints once lived on earth, were like us, ate and drank and had practically the same problems as modern man.

The title image is the painting "Behold, I stand at the door" - Christ came to these bald guys in caps too. And this is not far from the Gospel image of Christ, whose disciples were ordinary fishermen. Konstantin Zolotarev skillfully uses elements of the iconographic style in his paintings. Consciously or not, the image of God is revealed in man through his creativity.
