Saint John The Baptist(~5BC-28), celebrated on the 7th of January.
Reason for Conception:
The Saints belong, exclusively and by definition, to the religious world, thus becoming authentic symbols of the Christian spirituality. Although they transform graphically and visually the essence of the Divinity, icons carry in themselves the aura of a long ago scrutinized, never penetrated symbolism. Therefore, the icon becomes an allegory of ancestral symbols, millenary kept in the mysteries of Divinity. Traditional - Byzantine and Christian Orthodox – the simbolistic power is shown through a great material wealth, both in content and form: the clothes are of "kings"; materials like gold, silver, precious stones abound; the colors are bright - the touch of brilliance and splendor points to Divinity.
But here, the materials are simple / basic: wood, clay, metal, stone, etc., and the effect of colors is given, in its majority, by the wealth and beauty of the popular Romanian motifs.
Their presence is alleged in the religious rituals and the sacred - the Church for example, but in a warm home, in a thematic exhibition or even in a (pre)school manual with educational values, their ethereal presence christianizes the secular and profane through universal symbolics.

Books with explanations:
He is the Greatest Saint after the Virgin Mary, The One who Initiates, Messenger and Baptiser of Jesus. The Icon suggests a primitive figure, under the sign of the guillotine (it can not only separate the body from the head, but life from death, present from future, earth from heaven, etc.) he bathes in the muddy water of the Jordan, but is surrounded by blue, clear and bright water of Baptism. Everything is dominated by the symbol of the Communion.
