Description

Iconostasis with Jesus Christ as The Great High Priest on naturally aged wood

At this iconostasis we have a great representation, and a rare theme, of Jesus Christ as The High Priest. This representation is a copy of a famous icon of 17th century at Monastery of Sinai or Saint Catherine’s Monastery. The Lord Almighty sits on a throne as the Ruler of the universe. He is Blessing all humanity and the other hand He holds an opened Gospel. Christ is wearing the robes, the crown or miter, and the stole of bishops as they vest in church during the Divine Liturgy. Christ is the Great High Priest of His Church. Jesus, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, had “the power of an endless life” within Him from birth.

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.
