Description

Icon with Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary on Naturally Aged Wood

A beautiful serigraph with the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. We can see Archangel Gabriel and Virgin Mary in their unique encounter, where the Great Archangel delivers to her the joyful message that she is going to be the mother of Christ, the Son of God. The iconographer represents in this unique piece of Byzantine art the magnificent theological details of the icon. According the Orthodox tradition the angel went to Virgin Mary  and said, «Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you». But when He saw that She was troubled the angel said: «Do not be afraid, Mary you have found favor with God. You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus».

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

That piece of naturally aged wood used to be part of a door leaf at a cell at Mount Athos. When the cell was renovated because it has suffered many damages through years monks kept the pieces of that old wood to use them as a base at the icons they create. Renovation works were necessary so the cell could  remain in good condition and monks can continue to live there. Every part of this cell is connected with the monks who lived there and carries within blessings and prayers from many years ago. At Mount Athos there are dozens of cells and some of them are located there for centuries. The old wood has been carefully cut and preserved by monks with excellent techniques on processing wood.
