Hello, this is my first post here, but I am especially interested in Iconography and have been interested in it since I came into the Church less then a year ago.
However, I was reading the book of Joshua (or rather listening to it) and wondered why we do not see Iconography of many scenes in the Old Testament. My patron Saint is Prophet Joshua and I've only ever found a handful of Icons of him, though I am glad to be able to own one.
Is there any reason for this, or is it just that most Iconographers prefer to paint New Testament scenes and feast days?
I am interested in learning Iconography myself but as I am young and new to the Church I am not completely certain if I will be able to take up such a thing.
