Description

Icon with the Dormition of the Mother of God on Naturally Aged Wood

A beautiful serigraph 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.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

That piece of naturally aged wood used to be part of a door leaf at a cell at Mount Athos. When the cell was renovated because it has suffered many damages through years monks kept the pieces of that old wood to use them as a base at the icons they create. Renovation works were necessary so the cell could remain in good condition and monks can continue to live there. 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 there are dozens of cells and some of them are located there for centuries. The old wood has been carefully cut and preserved by monks with excellent techniques on processing wood.
