Description

Icon with Saint Charalambos on Naturally Aged Wood

At this icon we have the representation of Saint Charalambos who was an early Christian priest in Magnesia, a region of Asia Minor. He lived during the reign of Septimius Severus (193–211), when Lucian was Proconsul of Magnesia. It is believed that at the time of his martyrdom in 202, Charalambos was 113 years old. When the news of his preaching reached the authorities of the area, the proconsul Lucian and military commander Lucius, the saint was arrested and brought to trial, where he confessed his faith in Christ. Despite his advanced age, he was tortured mercilessly. It is said that the Saint gave up his soul to God even before the executioner had laid his sword to his neck.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

The history of this icon with the representation of Saint Charalambos has started many years before the monk completes the representation of this holy figure on canvas. The wood was naturally aged as it was part from a cell at Mount Athos which was renovated. It has been carefully cut and preserved by monks who created these collectible icons. During renovation works monks are keeping the old pieces of wood and they are turning them into these excellent works of art. In that way the wood continues to live with other usage, by becoming an icon. This wood carries the blessings and prayers of monks outside the borders of Mount Athos. Thanks to Mount Athos Exhibition, these collectible icons can be a great present for our friends and relatives.
