The Prodigal Son (Click to see full image).

A Reader's Guide to Orthodox Icons is an outstanding site that makes one long for full unity. In light of the fourth Sunday of Lent's Gospel account, they have a most informative post on various icons depicting the Parable of the Prodigal Son. One in particular [see above] is considered for it's contemplative value and theological insights [from the Orthodox perspective]. It is well worth your time.
