Iconostasis | Iconstand

 

* It's called "Iconostasis," simply a wooden or a marble stand that holds the sanctified icons.

* It comprises three doors, the central or Royal Door admitting to the main altar.

* On the right side of the royal door is put our Lord's Icon, while on the opposite side we find the Virgin Mary's Icon.

* This Iconostasis reminds us of the saints and heavenly creatures who are present with us to participate in our praise of God.
