Description

Icon with Jesus Christ The High Priest on Naturally Aged Wood

At this beautiful serigraph we have a great representation, and a rare theme, of Jesus Christ as The High Priest. This representation is a copy of a famous icon of 17th century at Monastery of Sinai or Saint Catherine’s Monastery. The Lord Almighty sits on a throne as the Ruler of the universe. He is Blessing all humanity and the other hand He holds an opened Gospel. Christ is wearing the robes, the crown or miter, and the stole of bishops as they vest in church during the Divine Liturgy. Christ is the Great High Priest of His Church. Jesus, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, had “the power of an endless life” within Him from birth.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

This naturally aged wood that was used at the icon of Jesus Christ as The High Priest 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.
