Description

Icon with Archangel Gabriel on Naturally Aged Wood

A beautiful serigraph with Archangel Gabriel on naturally aged wood from Mount Athos. In the Old and New Testaments are recorded the numerous interventions and benefits that the Archangel Gabriel has done. He was the one who brought the news to Zacharias that he would give birth to John the Baptist, but also to Joachim and Anne that they would give birth to the Most Holy Theotokos. Gabriel fed Virgin Mary who lived for twelve years in the temple, in the sanctuary of the saints, with heavenly food. He was the one who conveyed to her the joyful news, that she would give birth to the Son of God. Our Church celebrates the two Archangels Michael and Gabriel on November 8.

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.
