Description

Icon of Holy Trinity on Naturally Aged Wood

Hagiography with the Holy Trinity depicts the Father as an elder, the Son sitting on His right hand and the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove flying among them. The Father is painted as the Ancient of Days, a white-bearded man and the Holy Spirit is shown as a white dove which is placed between the Father and the Son. The canvas is placed on naturally aged wood from a renovated cell at Mount Athos. This type of depiction of the Holy Trinity refers to the last Byzantine and especially post-Byzantine times.

 

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

This icon with the representation of Holy Trinity on naturally aged wood is a great gift for our loved ones. This piece of wood was once part of a door leaf in a cell at Mount Athos. After the renovation works monks decides to use it for icons. This small piece of wood carries within blessings and prayers from the monks who lived at this cell.

On the front the monk placed the canvas with the representation of the Holy Trinity. 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 over 140 cells and many of them are located there for centuries. These pieces of wood are part of the history of Mount Athos. So monks decided to reuse them and give us a small piece of this history.
