I have been wondering why people worship created image as Jesus?

The iconic work is never a “image”, but an abstract, symbolic expression.

The icon cannot be simply called “idolatry”. The painting of the icon has a strict theological basis. For example, in order to express the chastity of the Virgin, the face of the Virgin is to be painted as a girl’s face. In addition, it is also theological meaning in color, such as symbolizing life in red, symbolizing reason in blue, symbolizing king in purple, and so on.
