______________________________

Colourful icons painted by world-renowned artists were unveiled with a reception Sunday at Assumption Greek Orthodox Church in St Clair Shores MI. Church officials said iconographer Vlasis Tsotsonis, assistant Niko Gaitanidis, and apprentice Ilia Brako spent months painting icons of the Lord, the Virgin Mary and other religious figures. Their work… Phase 1 of the project… replaces the iconography that was lost when a fire tore through the church in December 2002. The fire did more than 3.5 million USD (108 million Roubles. 2.7 million  Euros. 2.16 million UK Pounds) worth of damage.
