Description

Icon with Crucifixion of Jesus Christ on Naturally Aged Wood

A serigraph at which the iconographer monk has chosen the theme of the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Jesus at the Cross of martyrdom and below Him we can see Virgin Mary looking at Her Son with agony and deep pain because Her only Son is suffering. At the left side there is Saint John, the favorite Apostle of Jesus, who stands helpless and watches the Crucifixion. Under the Cross there are other figures who are often included in depictions of this subject. These are the three other women, all of them known with the name Mary. Among them was Mary Magdalene. We can also see that Virgin Mary is depicted mourning. The Crucifixion of Jesus is the ultimate act of love from God towards humanity. Jesus Christ sacrificed Himself and offered to all people atonement and salvation. Crucifixion is one of the most common iconographic themes, as it contains strong symbolism.

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.
