Description

Icon with the Holy Trinity on Naturally Aged Wood

A beautiful serigraph with the representation of the Holy Trinity which is a special composition, full of symbolisms and as a theme is located mainly in post-Byzantine times. This is the representation of the three Persons of the Holy Trinity, the Father, the Son, depicted from His right hand and the Holy Spirit. Here we can see the Father as an elder, the Son sitting on His right and the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove flying among them. The Father is painted as the Ancient of Days, a white-bearded man and the Holy Spirit is shown as a white dove which is placed between the Father and the Son. This type of depiction of the Holy Trinity refers to the last Byzantine and especially post-Byzantine times.

Blessed Wood that Came Out of Paradise

This naturally aged wood that was used at the icon with the representation of the Holy Trinity 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.
