Nativity of John the Forerunner

I found this deisis and thought it was a good icon for today. I really like how deisi show John the Forerunner as the last of the OT prophets pointing toward Christ ( "John beareth witness of him, and crieth out, saying, 'This was he of whom I spoke: He that shall come after me, is preferred before me: because he was before me.'" John 1:15" and Mary pointing towards Christ ("And Mary said: My soul doth magnify the Lord." Luke 1:46)

May God bless all who read my ramblings,
