HOW ENGLISH YOUNG PUPILS RENDERED ISAAC FANOUS’ FLIGHT TO EGYPT ICON

February 3, 2016

Flight to Egypt Fanous

Isaac Fanous (1919 – 2007) is the founder of the Coptic art of neo-iconography. One of his earliest great icons is Flight to Egypt, which he wrote in 1978.

The young English pupils of Class 6 at St. John’s C.E. Primary School in Crowborough, East Sussex, took Fanous’ iconic icon and based on it their own creation of art, using oil pastels, thus producing some astonishing work with a fresh look but retaining all the elements in Fanous’ icon. I attach two of their work below.
