Entrance of the Theotokos into the Temple

It's also because iconography has never been about realism, for the icon portrays some sort of spiritual reality. They are windows into the next world, a world that our as yet fallen nature can only gaze on in two dimensions. They are windows pointing to a world that in our falleness we find hard to grasp but someday God willing we will.
