Description

Icon with The Last Supper on Naturally Aged Wood

The Last Supper is the final meal that Jesus shared with his Apostles in Jerusalem before his crucifixion. The four canonical Gospels all state that the Last Supper took place towards the end of the week, after Jesus’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem and that Jesus and his apostles shared a meal shortly before Jesus was crucified at the end of that week. During this meal Jesus predicts his betrayal by one of the apostles present and foretells that before the next morning, Peter will thrice deny knowing him. It is well known that the Last Supper is filled with symbolism. It was the Passover meal and Jesus is the sacrificial lamb. He uses bread to symbolize his body. The bread is broken and given to be shared, just as his body will be broken and his life given up for others.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

The wood at this icon has been carefully cut and preserved by monks with excellent techniques on processing wood. This piece of naturally aged wood was part of a ceiling beam but when monks renovated the cell and replaced the beam, they thought that these pieces of wood could be used to make beautiful artworks. On Mount Athos there are dozens of cells and many of them are located there for centuries. This wood carries the blessings and prayers of monks outside the borders of Mount Athos. Thanks to Mount Athos Exhibition, these collectible icons can be a great present for our friends and relatives.
