Description

Serigraph with Annunciation of Virgin Mary on Naturally Aged Wood

A serigraph with the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Here 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

This is a unique icon, not only because of the beautiful iconography that shows the skills of the monk but also of the wood which was used by the monk who created this artwork. This naturally aged wood was part of a cell at Mount Athos but when monks renovated the place and replaced the beams and doors, they thought that these pieces of wood could be used to make icons. The wood that was used at this icon came from a renovated cell and it has been carefully cut and preserved by monks with excellent techniques on processing wood. Renovation works are necessary at many cells so they can remain in good condition and monks can continue to live there.
