This is the Icon as it hangs in the main church of Taizé.
Another great Icon used often at Taizé is the Icon of Friendship. As Brother Jean-Marc describes, this icon is different from many of the others. I still think it's beautiful and I love using art in prayer and worship as a way to enter deeper into the mystery of faith and spiritual connection. Here's more from Brother Jean-Marc's writing on icons:
The original was s discovered in 1902 after lying hidden in the ruins of the monastery of Bawit for many centuries. It is now preserved in the Musée du Louvre, Paris.
