Transfiguration of Jesus

The Transfiguration of Jesus was an event in which Jesus was transfigured upon a mountain. Jesus became radiant and spoke with Moses and Elijah and was called "son" by God.

The Transfiguration put Jesus on par with the two preeminent figures of Judaism - Moses and Elijah.

In the Orthodox Church, the Feast of the Transfiguration commemorates this event and it is observed on August 6.

This hand embroidered card depicting the Transfiguration of our Lord Jesus Christ was created by the Greek artist Katerina Kondovraki in order to honor his event.

I am offering this card as a gift to the Metropolitan Bishop Simeon of Nea Smyrni, Athens, Greece.
