Description

Icon Christ the True Vine that has been crafted on naturally aged wood by Mount Athos Monk

Christ said to His disciples, “I am the vine and my Father is the vinedresser. Every branch of mine that bears no fruit he takes away, and every branch of mine that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit.” (John 15:1-2).

This Orthodox icon, Christ the True Vine first appeared in the 15th century. Christ sits as though He is enthroned at the bifurcation point of the vine’s branches. He has an open Gospel on His knees. His arms are raised high giving a benediction with both hands. Branching out from the trunk of the vine are twelve shoots where the Apostles sit on the branches. Peter and Paul are closest to Christ. They hold either a book or a scroll.

Blessed Wood that came out of Heaven!

Mount Athos Monks deeply appreciate the historical and spiritual significance of the place where they live. They try to use everything around them for the glory of God.

Even perishable materials that seemed to have no use in the past are now utilized by Greek Orthodox Monks. Thus, old woods that are found after the renovation of Holy Cells are used thanks to the wisdom of Greek Orthodox Monks.

Woods that used to be supporting beams in the past are now used for the creation of these collectible icons.

They continue to carry the Athonite blessing of Mount Athos since they come straight from this holy place.

Thanks to Mount Athos Exhibition, these collectible icons can be found in the hands of cosmic people who are now able to purchase real treasures of unique spiritual value.

Monks tend to accompany their work with prayers while the creation of these unique works of Byzantine art is one of their daily occupations.

Blessed Mount Athos Woods – Preservation

The wood has been carefully cut and preserved by Greek Orthodox Monks.

The handcrafted icon Christ the True Vine is unique and its design can not be repeated!
