Description

Iconostasis with Virgin Mary Sweetness of Angels on naturally aged wood

At this iconostasis Virgin Mary Sweetness of Angels is placed on a throne as She holds small Christ. The adoration and respect for the Virgin Mary gave her a great number of names. It is estimated that Theotokos has about 500 epithets depending on the way She was painted, the place where Her churches and monasteries are or even from traditions. The epithet Sweetness of Angels means that Virgin Mary is the one who brought joy to angels and the whole world when she gave birth to Jesus Christ.

Blessed wood that came out of Paradise

The wood at this iconostasis has been carefully cut and preserved by monks with excellent techniques on processing wood. These pieces of naturally aged wood was part of a ceiling beam or a door but when monks renovated the cell and replaced them, they thought that these pieces could be used to make beautiful artworks. The monks, with absolute respect, kept the old pieces of the wood and after the required maintenance they reuse them to make this unique iconostasis. Renovation works are necessary at many cells so they can remain in good condition and monks can continue to live there.
