Description

 Icon with Virgin Mary Dexiokratousa on Naturally Aged Wood

This icon represents Virgin Mary Dexiokratousa. That means She is holding little infant Jesus on the right side and not to the left, thus called «Deksia», «Deksa» or «Dexiokratousa» – right handed or right side. There is however another version, according to which, Virgin Mary has an intercessory role between people and Jesus Christ.

Virgin Mary is the one who hears and accepts the prayers, the supplications and the requests of all people who turns to Her for help. Virgin Mary Dexiokratousa in the conscience of many people is the Mother of all, who saves everyone who prays to Her. She is the one who stands by them and can wait patiently to hear their prayers so She can mediate for them.

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 dozens of 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.
