‘Behold I Stand At The Door And Knock’ Icon


Out of stock



This icon was inspired by the text of Revelation 3:20 as depicted in the familiar painting Christ at Heart’s Door by Warner Sallman. Although the subject is unique for an icon, it is presented in conventional iconographic imagery. Christ’s stance and shape denote movement, showing that his arrival is urgent. The door is without a handle. He will not force His way in—we must open and let Him in. It is also quite small, as are our hearts much of the time. This icon appeals to us to accept Jesus into our lives, as well as to undergo daily conversion.

Wood-mounted icons are on 5/8″ ProWood® Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) with a wood-look foil finish, with tee-slots milled in the back for easy hanging. Icons are finished in classic cherry to replicate the traditional icon red, in keeping with Byzantine tradition. (Ancient icon board edges were frequently coated with red bole, a form of clay). Each mounted icon comes with a descriptive pamphlet explaining the symbolism and history of the image.
