Description

Icon with Saint Luke the Doctor on Naturally Aged Wood

A serigraph with Saint Luke the doctor who was declared a Saint in 1996. He was born in Crimaia and grew up in Kiev, where along with his general studies he also studied Painting and Medicine, specializing on surgery. After the death of his wife, he became a priest and was exiled in Siberia. In 1920 he was elected Professor of Topographic Anatomy and Surgery at the University of Tashkent.

His research on the issue of purulent infections were innovative and he wrote the manual still used today. He was arrested multiple times and was brutally tortured. He slept in Simferopol after having served as an Archbishop and doctor selflessly and with sacrificial love. Throughout the last nine years of his life he was blind from glaucoma, but in this also he showed Job-like patience.

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 or a door but when monks renovated the cell and replaced them, they thought that these pieces of wood could be used to make beautiful artworks. The monks, with absolute respect, kept the old pieces of the wood and after the required maintenance they reuse them as a base for these beautiful icons. Renovation works are necessary at many cells so they can remain in good condition and monks can continue to live there.
