Description

Icon of  Holy Lady of Mourning  on naturally aged wood

This beautiful icon is placed on naturally aged wood from Mount Athos. The first authentic Holy Lady of Mourning was painted at 1972 at Mount Athos by monk Ioasaf and then it was send at New Olynthos Halkidiki. According to tradition Virgin Mary cured a child and his father built a church at their village. But he couldn’t decide at which icon of Virgin Mary to dedicate this church so Theotokos came at his dream and She told him to go at Mount Athos, find monk Ioasaf and beg him to paint the icon of Holy Lady of Mourning.

 

Blessed Wood that came out of Paradise

The wood at this icon has been carefully cut and preserved by monks with excellent techniques on processing wood. This naturally aged wood was part of a ceiling beam but when monks renovated the cell and replaced the beam, they thought that these pieces of wood could be used to make beautiful artworks.

On the front of this icon they placed the canvas with the representation of Holy Lady of Mourning. On the back side of the icon two parallel cross – beams have been placed to support the image as well as a leather hook. On Mount Athos there are dozens of cells and many of them are located there for centuries.
