Below is a view of the chapel with our collages and the icons around the walls. Most striking among the icons is perhaps the permanent feature of the chapel - the cross-shaped painting 'Christ the worker' over the altar, which shows Jesus with the marks of crucifixion but dressed as a carpenter. In the left column are some of the historic icons and below the main picture close-up views of some of the items around the walls of the chapel. (Unfortunately, time did not permit making a record of all of them.) The first icon on the left - Rublev's 'The Hospitality of Abraham' - picks up one the themes of the retreat.
