Description

Lithography with Τhe Resurrection

This is a beautiful lithography with the representation  of the Resurrection. In Christian theology the death and resurrection of Jesus are the most important events, a foundation of the Christian faith and commemorated by Easter. His resurrection is the guarantee that all the Christian dead will be resurrected at Christ’s second coming. On the basis of the icon of the Resurrection, between the steep cliffs, a dark abyss opens. Above the cave, in the center of the image, the winner of death, Jesus Christ arises. The composition of the icon has been particularly well studied, even to the smallest details. Everything, from the shape of the rocks to the proportion of the colors, contains a deeper meaning and obeys the laws of the Byzantine art of iconography. The visual depiction of the apocryphal text acquires a symbolic character.

Lithography: Characteristics

A beautiful lithography with the representation of the Resurrection. 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.
