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

This naturally aged wood that was used at the icon with the representation of Jesus Christ Blessing came from a renovated cell from Mount Athos which has suffered many damages through years. Renovation works were necessary to remain in good condition so monks can continue to live there. Monks are replacing doors, window shutters or ceiling beams but they are keeping the pieces of wood so they can reuse them. They are cutting and processing the wood with excellent techniques so they can use it later for their artworks such as these icons. These pieces of wood are part of the history of Mount Athos. So monks reuse them and they are giving us a small piece of this history.
