Description

Icon with Saint David of Euboea on Naturally Aged Wood

An icon with Saint David of Euboea, also David the Elder. He built a church on the island of Evia in honour of the Transfiguration of the Saviour. He shared the monastery’s goods unstintingly with all those in need, deserving or not, Christian or Muslim. And so he spent many years radiating the presence of God with his virtues and many miracles. While he was travelling to mediate in the divisions among the bishops of the Peloponnese, his ship shank and David was saved by a miracle. At the end he gathered his disciples and passed to them his final spiritual instructions. He departed this life at the moment when he had confided to those around him that Christ had just then appeared to him. After his death a large number of miracles occurred at the saint’s grave.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

The history of this icon with the representation of Saint David has started many years before the monk completes the representation of this holy figure 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.
