Description

Icon with Deisis on Naturally Aged Wood

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. This is a traditional iconic representation of Christ usually carrying a book and surrounded by Virgin Mary and John the Baptist. In some icons there are also saints and angels. Virgin Mary and Saint John the Baptist are shown facing towards Christ with their hands raised in supplication on behalf of humanity. They are praying for the souls of all people. In Byzantine and Orthodox art this icon is called Deisis (Supplication).

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

This icon with the representation of Deisis on naturally aged wood is a great gift for our loved ones. 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. This small piece of wood carries within blessings and prayers from the monks who lived at this cell. On the front the monk placed the canvas with the representation of Virgin Mary, Jesus Christ and John the Baptist. On the back side of the icon two parallel cross – beams have been placed to support the image as well as a leather hook. On Mount Athos there are dozens of cells and many of them are located there for centuries. These pieces of wood are part of the history of Mount Athos. So monks decided to reuse them and give us a small piece of this history.
