Description

Serigraph with Holy Lady of Mourning on Naturally Aged Wood

This is a serigraph with the representation of Holy Lady of Mourning crafted by a monk at 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. The man did what the Virgin Mary told him and after that the church was dedicated at this icon.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

That piece of naturally aged wood used to be part of a door leaf at a cell at Mount Athos. When the cell was renovated because it has suffered many damages through years monks kept the pieces of that old wood to use them as a base at the icons they create. Renovation works were necessary so the cell could  remain in good condition and monks can continue to live there. Every part of this cell is connected with the monks who lived there and carries within blessings and prayers from many years ago. At Mount Athos there are dozens of cells and some of them are located there for centuries. The old wood has been carefully cut and preserved by monks with excellent techniques on processing wood.
