This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Here are some Orthodox wall hangings for your game.

I used Xrax's mesh; please download here:

Thanks! I'm not Orthodox, but I definitely have a soft spot for the Icons, and now so can my Sims!

They are just Orthodox (Правослаивие, Pravoslavie-Православни, Pravoslavni) fresco's. Same religious icons are used for every Orthodox Church. Difference if I can call it that, is the saint to whom the church is dedicated to, so, beside Jesus, Madonna etc. there are icons and wall paintings depicting the saint protector of the church, along with some scenes from the Bible.
I am Orthodox, and I want more orthodox stuff about churches. And maybe Orthodox priest career with outfits, blessing ability, calming down dead sim's ghosts etc.
For now though, I will built an orthodox church and put these stuffs in it.
