not a very important question, but i saw that russian and antiochian icons are really expensive, and i think greek ones too. i mean proper icons like for the church, not pictures (soora). the russian ones are hundreds of dollars.
i can't imagine our icons are so expensive, but as i only have pictures at home, and these were gifts, i don't know. a friend of mine writes icons but he does it for the church, as far as i know he didn't sell them.
does anyone know how much they cost in egypt/sudan?
