Description

Icon with Jesus Christ Pantocrator with Apostles on Naturally Aged Wood

A serigraph with the representation of Jesus Christ Pantocrator with Apostles. The icon depicts Christ with a somewhat melancholy, with the right hand raised in blessing while holding a gospel with his left one and two of the Apostles bows down in front of Him. Pantocrator usually translated as «almighty» or «all-powerful». The icon of Christ Pantocrator appears in the dome of most Orthodox Churches. According to Orthodox tradition the highest point of the Church is reserved for Jesus Christ. His Mother and all the other saints, angels and prophets are depicted on the walls immediately below Pantocrator. The iconographic type of Christ Pantocrator, the «all-powerful», is very frequent in later Byzantine art.

Blessed Wood that Came Out of Paradise

The wood at this icon has been carefully cut and preserved by monks with excellent techniques on processing wood. This piece of naturally aged wood was part of a ceiling beam or a door but when monks renovated the cell and replaced them, they thought that these pieces of wood could be used to make beautiful artworks. The monks, with absolute respect, kept the old pieces of the wood and after the required maintenance they reuse them as a base for these beautiful icons. Renovation works are necessary at many cells so they can remain in good condition and monks can continue to live there.
