The Artist’s Akathist (from The Akathist Hymn: Glory to God for All Things)
“The breath of Thine Holy Spirit inspires artists, poets and scientists. The power of Thy supreme knowledge makes them prophets and interpreters of Thy laws, who reveal the depths of Thy creative wisdom. Their works speak unwittingly of Thee. How great art Thou in Thy creation! How great art Thou in man!
Glory to Thee, showing Thine unsurpassable power in the laws of the universe
Glory to Thee, for all nature is filled with Thy laws
Glory to Thee for what Thou hast revealed to us in Thy mercy
Glory to Thee for what Thou hast hidden from us in Thy wisdom
Glory to Thee for the inventiveness of the human mind
Glory to Thee for the dignity of man’s labour
Glory to Thee for the tongues of fire that bring inspiration
Glory to Thee, O God, from age to age”
– Ikos 7, The Akathist of Thanksgiving (written by Metropolitan Tryphon of Turkestan in a prison camp)
Birds, painted in watercolor, sing to each other, one sending out creative inspiration and one receiving, to symbolize the Holy Spirit’s divine inspiration given to artists, poets, and scientists.
