Description

Christ Crucified is depicted on natural wood specially processed and cut crosswise in this completely handmade work of art.

The hagiography follows a simple iconographic figure while the body of Christ is slightly curved. The decorative folds in the garment of Christ speak about the art of the hagiographer, father Pefkis, who has studied at the Athonite Academy of the Holy Mount Athos and has been taught there the details of the Athonite hagiographic tradition as well as the genuine Byzantine art.

According to the Christian tradition, the poppies grew beneath the cross of Christ and received the drops of the blood of the Crucified between their petals, drops that gave them their crimson scarlet color! This justifies the small handmade detail at the bottom of the cross.
