Icon

A sacred image generally painted on a wooden board, often with a golden coloured background, which is typical of Byzantine art. From 730 to 843 the destruction of these images was called iconoclasm. The iconographer is the painter; iconography is the science that studies this type of art, the meanings of which are meant to be symbolic-religious.
