Description

Icon with Jesus Christ Pantocrator on Naturally Aged Wood

This is an excellent icon with the representation of Jesus Christ Pantocrator, one of the most common religious images of Orthodox Christianity. At this particular icon Jesus Christ is surrounded by the four Evangelists which are represented by their symbols, an ox, a lion, an angel and an eagle. Pantocrator usually is 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

This naturally aged wood that was used at the icon with the representation of Jesus Christ Pantocrator 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.
