Engraved Lithography with the Holy Trinity

The Holy Trinity is a special composition, full of symbolisms, which as a theme is located mainly in post-Byzantine times. This is the representation of the three Persons of the Holy Trinity, the Father, the Son, depicted from His right hand and the Holy Spirit. Here we can see the Father as an elder, the Son sitting on His right 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. This type of depiction of the Holy Trinity refers to the last Byzantine and especially post-Byzantine times.

Engraved Lithography: Characteristics

A wonderful icon, which has been created with the technique of lithography and is upgraded in quality and aesthetics thanks to the engraved natural wood, but also the gold leaf, which is used in the background of the representation. The technique of lithography is very widespread and is taught in the iconography workshops of Mount Athos, while at the same time it is used by several monks to create exceptional works of art. At this icon the monk used a lithographic copy of Byzantine art to create this artwork, while it is worth mentioning that the natural wood of the icon is worked exclusively by hand.
