Does the sacred icon have anything to offer a secular world? Art critic Sarah Kent visits the Shropshire studio of Aidan Hart, a New Zealand-born Orthodox iconographer with more than 20 years experience of painting icons.

His commissioners have included the Prince of Wales and the Iviron Monastery in Greece, and with him Sarah explores the concepts behind modern iconography and the icon's place in today's culture.
