Mira featured in the Dancing Saints Icon Project

The Dancing Saints icon is a monumental, surprising and powerful statement of faith for the ages, created by iconographer Mark Dukes with the people of Saint Gregory of Nyssa Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Twelve years in the making, it is a 3,000 square foot icon wrapping around the entire church rotunda, showing ninety larger-than life saints; four animals; stars, moons, suns and a twelve-foot dancing Christ.

The saints—ranging from traditional figures like King David, Teresa of Avila and Francis of Assisi to unorthodox and non-Christian people like Malcolm X, Anne Frank, and Rumi—represent musicians, artists, mathematicians, martyrs, scholars, mystics, lovers, prophets and sinners from all times, from many faiths and backgrounds.

As the congregation dances around the altar, the saints dance above, proclaiming a sweeping, universal vision of God shining through human life.
