Description

Serigraph with Annunciation of Virgin Mary on Naturally Aged Wood

A serigraph at which the iconographer monk has chosen the theme of 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

At this particular icon the iconographer monk used as a base a piece of wood that has long history. The cracks at the surface of the wood confirms its age and the fact that for many years it was part of a door or a ceiling beam or even part of the furnishings in a cell at Mount Athos. When some of these objects had to be replaced the monks, with absolute respect, are keeping the old pieces of the wood and after the required maintenance they reuse them as a base for these beautiful icons. They are cutting and processing the wood with excellent techniques so they can use it later for their artworks. Renovation works are necessary at many cells so they can remain in good condition and monks can continue to live there.
