Description

Icon with Deisis on Naturally Aged Wood

This is a beautiful icon with the representation of Deisis. At this icon the iconographer represents three of the most important figures in Orthodox Church, Jesus Christ, Virgin Mary and Saint John the Baptist. In Byzantine art and later Eastern Orthodox art generally, the Deisis, «prayer» or «supplication», is a traditional iconic representation of Christ, enthroned or not, carrying a book and flanked by the Virgin Mary and Saint John the Baptist. Mary and John, and any other figures, are shown facing towards Christ with their hands raised in supplication on behalf of humanity. At this iconographic type there are some times and other saints or angels.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

The history of this icon with the representation of Deisis has started many years before the monk completes the representation of these holy figures 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.
