None of the categories provided quite applies to my art. I am an iconographer. Icons are "prayers of the hands" or "prayers enshrined in wood. As such, they are not art for arts sake. It's quite different from other forms of art in that traditional and ancient images are reproduced more often than new images are created. There's a subjugation of ego so that the theology is the thing that shines. The art form was born out of the Byzantine empire in the 4th century and survives most readily today in the Christian East.
