A Catholic icon is a representation of the image of such holy figures as the saints, Mary, Jesus and other religious figures, in the form of a painting. An interesting aspect of Catholic icons is that almost everything on the icon has a symbolic meaning. From the colors used to paint the Catholic icon to the way the subject is portrayed on the icon. For example certain iconic figures always have halos, such as Mary or Jesus, while angels are always depicted with wings in Catholic icons. Photo by Jenn Bartram/ladailypost.com
