Description

Iconostasis with the Crucifixion on naturally aged wood

At this beautiful and unique iconostasis the monk has chosen the theme of the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Jesus at the cross of martyrdom and below Him we can see Virgin Mary looking at Her Son with agony and deep pain because Her only Son is suffering on the cross. At the left side there is Saint John, the favorite Apostle of Jesus, who stands helpless and watches the Crucifixion. The Crucifixion of Jesus is the ultimate act of love from God towards humanity. Jesus Christ sacrificed Himself and offered to all people atonement and salvation. Crucifixion is one of the most common iconographic themes, as it contains strong symbolism.

Blessed wood that came out of Paradise

A beautiful iconostasis which has the structure of a triptych. These pieces of wood has been carefully cut and preserved by monks with excellent techniques on processing wood. This piece 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 of wood 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 as a base for these beautiful icons. Renovation works are necessary at many cells so they can remain in good condition and monks can continue to live there.
