Description

Icon with Virgin Mary Vrefokratousa on naturally aged wood

The collectible icon of Virgin Mary Vrefokratousa on a canvas is placed on wood of natural aging. Virgin Mary has a perfectly sculpted halo and the wood of the icon has cracks and relief texture, elements that gives charm to the Byzantine. The icon of the Virgin Mary depicts the Mother of God holding baby Jesus to her right side and leaning Her head slightly towards Him to symbolize her protection and tenderness. The Mother of God enfolds Her Son with both hands and looks straight ahead with kindness and so is little Jesus. The wood where the icon is placed comes from a restored cell of Mount Athos. The monks took care to keep it intact from renovation work. They aged it according to the traditional techniques they use in the carved temple and used it, transforming it into an icon.

Blessed wood that came out of Paradise

The history of this icon with the representation of Virgin Mary Vrefokratousa 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.
