Description

Lithography with the Hospitality of Abraham

A beautiful lithography with the representation of the Holy Trinity or else the Hospitality of Abraham. We can see the three angels who appeared to Abraham. As we are told by the Book of Genesis while Abraham was seated near the oak of Mambre three men visited his tent, that were totally unknown to him. He immediately welcomed them although they were total strangers and then he prepared a meal for them. During their conversation, the strange visitors announced to Abraham that his wife Sarah would give birth to a child within that year, which was indeed fulfilled. In this biblical event, the Fathers of the Church saw a pre-defining of the mystery of the Holy Trinity.

Lithography: Characteristics

At this icon the iconographer monk used the technique of lithography to create this beautiful work of art. The monk was taught the technique of lithography at the workshops of iconography at the monasteries of Mount Athos. This particular icon was crafted with the Byzantine style with both the technique of lithography and the procedure of artificial maturation by hand. This icon can be an excellent gift for our friends or relatives because it is an artwork made with love from the monks of this holy place.
