Description

Icon with Jesus Christ Blessing on Naturally Aged Wood

This is a beautiful serigraph with Jesus Christ Blessing, one of the most common representations of Jesus. At this icon Christ is looking directly out at us with his right hand raised in blessing and with his other hand he is holding a book of scripture. Christ is giving His blessing to all people because He is the «Saviour of the World». Christ does not deny his blessing to anyone and He was the One who always approached not only the virtuous but also the sinners to stand by them and show them the way of God. With his hand, he blesses the whole world, showing his unlimited love for each person individually.

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.
