Here are some images of a recently completed project of a Bishop’s Throne. On the right-hand side of the nave is the bishop’s throne from which he presides as a living icon of Christ among his people. Even in the bishop’s absence, the throne reminds all that the parish is not an isolated entity but is part of a diocese which the bishop heads.
I have worked with a wonderful painter and iconographer for many years by the name of Panaiotis Mihaloupoulos. Here are some images of the work he has done for projects we've worked on together. All of his work, like the work of Konstantinos is done by hand.
Here is an image from blueprints from another iconostasis project at St. George Orthodox Church in Indianapolis, Indiana. This project will be carved in the Criticoeptanisiaco style. There are only five Churches in the world, known to be carved in this style. This will be the second Church in the United States carved in this style, and both projects will have been carved by Konstantinos Papadakis.
Here are some hand drawn blueprints for my new project, Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Tulsa Oklahoma. The symbols in the panels on this project are taken from our rich Orthodox tradition. This project began in August, 2012 and is scheduled to be completed in August of 2013. The dimensions of this project are 38.5 feet long, and 15.3 feet high. The wood used in this project is American Black Walnut. The design details of these carvings are Papadakis originals.
This iconostasis project is installed at Holy Anagyroi Greek Orthodox Church in Rochester, Minnesota.
The Church in Pallouriotissa, Cyprus holds a special place in the heart of Konstantinos Papadakis. As a young wood carver in the 1960’s, under the tutelage of the master of masters, Theophanis Nomicos, he was honored to have some of his work selected to be included in the iconostasis of this beautiful church.
