Description

Icon with Crucifixion and Resurrection on Naturally Aged Wood

A beautiful serigraph with the representation of the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Jesus at the Cross of martyrdom and below Him we can see Virgin Mary looking at Her Son with agony and deep pain because Her only Son is suffering on the cross. The Crucifixion of Jesus is the ultimate act of love from God towards humanity. Jesus Christ sacrificed Himself and offered to all people atonement and salvation. Crucifixion is one of the most common iconographic themes, as it contains strong symbolism.

In Christian theology the death and resurrection of Jesus are the most important events, a foundation of the Christian faith. His resurrection is the guarantee that all the Christian dead will be resurrected at Christ’s second coming. The composition of the icon has been particularly well studied, even to the smallest details. Everything, from the shape of the rocks to the proportion of the colors, contains a deeper meaning and obeys the laws of the Byzantine art of iconography.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

This naturally aged wood that was used at the icon with the representation of Crucifixion and Resurrection 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.
