Description

Iconostasis with Virgin Mary Amolyntos on naturally aged wood

A unique iconostasis with the representation of Virgin Mary Amolyntos. The Mother of Jesus is commonly called as the Virgin Mary, in accordance with the belief that she conceived Jesus miraculously. In Greek Orthodoxy the name «Panagia the Amolyntos» means the All-Holy Pure One and She is also called Panagia tou Pathous, meaning All-Holy One of the Passion. The name of Virgin Mary Amolyntos derives from the hymn of the Compline composed by monk Paulos. At this icon Jesus Christ is depicted looking towards the angels who are illustrated above Virgin Mary holding the symbols of Passion, the Cross, the Spear and the Sponge.

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.
