Description

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

At this 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 to 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

The history of this icon with the representation Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary 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.
