Icon with Christ Life Giver on Naturally Aged Wood

A great serigraph with Christ Life Giver. At this icon which is crafted on naturally aged wood Christ is presented as strict and just. Throughout the history of the world, He is the only winner of death. With his sacrifice on the cross, he ultimately overcame death and sin. The Resurrection of Christ is the foundation of the Church. The Resurrection is the final victory over death, not only as a continuation of biological life but as immortality. Christ is the Savior of the world and the Resurrection of mankind. This is also stated in the Gospel: «I am Resurrection and Life».

Blessed Wood that Came Out of Paradise

That piece of naturally aged wood used to be part of a door leaf at a cell at Mount Athos. When the cell was renovated because it has suffered many damages through years monks kept the pieces of that old wood to use them as a base at the icons they create. Renovation works were necessary so the cell could  remain in good condition and monks can continue to live there. Every part of this cell is connected with the monks who lived there and carries within blessings and prayers from many years ago. At Mount Athos there are dozens of cells and some of them are located there for centuries. The old wood has been carefully cut and preserved by monks with excellent techniques on processing wood.
