Description

Icon of Christ and the Twelve Apostles on naturally aged wood

At this icon we have Jesus Christ in the middle and all around Him are the 12 apostles. The special characteristic of this icon is that canvas is fitted on naturally aged wood from an Athonite cell. According to tradition they were Jews, uneducated commoners and simple men of faith who gave up everything to be followers of Christ. They were: Peter, James, John, Andrew, Bartholomew or Nathanael, James, the Lesser or Younger, Jude or Thaddeus, Matthew or Levi, Philip, Simon the Zealot, Thomas and Judas. But after the betrayal of Judas, Matthias was selected to replace him.

 

Blessed Wood that came out of Paradise

A beautiful icon with Jesus Christ and the Twelve Apostles on naturally aged wood which comes from a renovated cell at Mount Athos. 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 are over 140 cells and some of them are located there for centuries.

This piece of wood was once part of a door leaf in a cell at Mount Athos. After the renovation works monks decided to use it for icons. On the back side of the icon two parallel cross – beams have been placed to support the image as well as a leather hook.
