Ruth and Naomi, the Famous words of Ruth in the vers Ruth:1:16 are often repeated at weddings because they are such wonderful words of love and devotion. The words were not directed toward a husband or sweetheart, but toward her mother-in-law, Naomi. The book of ruth in the Old Testament discribes with beautiful simplicity the story of a Moabite woman who converted to Judaism and became the great-grandmother of David ( in about 1100 BC). Ruth is one of the "historical"books of the Hebrew canon and serves to illustrate how God takes care of those who put their trust in Him. Naomi is dressed as all biblical women are dressed in iconography, in a dress and hooded cloak called a MAPHORION. Ruth's garb is clearly different, with hair exposed and an Arab-like head covering reflecting her Moabite origin.
Their faces are drawn in symbolic iconographic style, rather than with an attempt at realistic portraiture. The noses are a long slender, conforming to Byzantine ideal of nobility. Their eyes are overlarge and soulful, indicating spiritual depth. The months are small and closed in the silence contemplation. Whitin these constraints, The top center of the Icon is occupied by a symbol of the heavenly realm,including a six-pointed Star of David to come. "Ruth and Naomi" are spelled out in their native Hebrew.
From this beautiful Icon, I made my visitecard, invite you to come and enjoy my Community " House of Ruth" Belgium.
