Description

Icon with Holy Lady of Mourning on Naturally Aged Wood

This is a beautiful icon on naturally aged wood 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

The wood that was used at this icon came from a renovated cell at Mount Athos and it has been carefully cut and preserved by monks with excellent techniques on processing wood. At Mount Athos there are dozens of cells and many of them are located there for centuries.

Renovation works are necessary to remain in good condition so monks can continue to live there. Every part of these cells is connected with the monks who lived there and carries within blessings and prayers from many years ago. Woods that used to be supporting beams in the past are now used for the creation of these collectible icons and they continue to carry the blessings of monks from Mount Athos.
