"Let the Children Come Unto Me" Desk Plaque is a traditional religious icon that beautifully depicts the scene of Christ receiving the children while illustrating a valuable lesson about the kingdom of Heaven. The IC and XC in the two upper corners of the icon are a “Christogram” of the Greek words for Jesus Christ (ΙΗ?ΟΥ? ΧΡΙ?ΤΟ?). The letters in Christ’s halo (OWN) are a Greek abbreviation that roughly translates to “I AM” or “I AM WHO IS,” conveying Christ’s connection with the First Person of the Trinity.
The "Let the Children Come Unto Me" icon was originally produced by Mount Tabor Studios, a team of iconographers headed by Fr. Abbot Damian Higgins, who have collectively produced over 1,000 icons in the past 20 years. Many of the icons are painted using the traditional method of egg tempera and exhibit the influence of various schools, including Greek, Byzantine, and Russian iconography.
