Description

Lithography with Saint Theodore Tyron

A lithography with Saint Theodore Tyron who is venerated as warrior saint and Great Martyr in the Orthodox Church. He was a recruit serving in the Roman army at Amasea, which is the modern Amasya in Northern Turkey. When he refused to join his fellow soldiers in pagan rites of worship, he was arrested, but then set free after a warning. However, he again protested paganism by setting fire to the temple of Cybele, which was the local mother-goddess at Amasea. He was then condemned to death and, after tortures, was executed by being thrown into a furnace. In Western Christianity, he is usually called «Theodore of Amasea» from the ancient city in Pontus where he suffered martyrdom.

Lithography: Characteristics

A beautiful lithography with the representations of Saint Theodore Tyron. Monks are learning the technique of lithography at iconography workshops at Mount Athos so they can create with love and patience these excellent artworks. At this icon the monk used a lithographic copy of Byzantine art to create this artwork. He also applied the process of artificial maturation by hand to give this icon unique aesthetic value. Lithography is a method of printing originally based on the immiscibility of oil and water.
