Description

Engraved Lithography with the Dormition of the Mother of God

A beautiful icon with the Dormition of the Mother of God. According to Orthodox tradition Virgin Mary was living in the house of the Apostle John, in Jerusalem, when the Archangel Gabriel revealed to her that her death would occur three days later. After that the apostles, scattered throughout the world, were miraculously brought at house to be at her side when she died.  Everyone, except Thomas, who was preaching in India. He is said to have arrived in a cloud above her tomb exactly three days after her death. Thomas said that he wished to see Virgin Mary for the last time but he discovered an empty tomb. Church tradition relates that Theotokos was resurrected bodily and taken to heaven.

Engraved Lithography: Characteristics

A wonderful image, which has been created with the technique of lithography and is upgraded in quality and aesthetics thanks to the engraved natural wood, but also the gold leaf, which is used in the background of the representation. The technique of lithography is very widespread and is taught in the iconography workshops of Mount Athos, while at the same time it is used by several monks to create exceptional works of art. At this icon the monk used a lithographic copy of Byzantine art to create this artwork, while it is worth mentioning that the natural wood of the image is worked exclusively by hand.
