According to the ancient tradition, every Christian family should own at least one icon, because the house, despite its primary function of “family corner”, is considered to be an extension of the church. House must be a place for the family to pray and keep close to the God; therefore, icon is an obligatory attribute for the Christian family. For Orthodox, icon is not only a simple canvas with the image of a man, it is a sacred image intended for the communication with God. There must be a special place for the icon and thus for the prayer in every Christian house. This place has different names: red, front or holy corner, shrine, Kyoto or ark. According to the Christian customs, every home should have images of the Mother of God and Savior.
Image of Jesus Christ is usually portrayed to the waist with his hand in blessing, holding closed or an open book; image of the Virgin is often conveyed in icons "Tenderness " and " Protectress". The most worshiped icon among Orthodox Christians is Kazan icon of the Mother of God. This icon is extremely popular and usually hangs over the bed. It is believed that image of the Virgin protects babies. Also, despite the great variety and number or Orthodox saints, it is this icon, which is usually used for wedding procedures in Orthodox churches.
One should rely on his own intuition and listen to his heart when selecting the icon for his home, this is very individual task.
