Description

Icon with Saint George on Naturally Aged Wood

At this beautiful icon there is the representation of Saint George. He was a soldier of Cappadocian Greek origins, member of the Praetorian Guard for Roman emperor Diocletian, who was sentenced to death for refusing to recant his Christian faith. He became one of the most venerated saints and megalo-martyrs in Christianity. His father died for the faith when George was fourteen, and his mother returned with George to her homeland.

A few years later, George’s mother died. George travelled to the capital Nicomedia and joined the Roman army. George was executed by decapitation on 23 April 303. A witness of his suffering convinced Empress Alexandra of Rome to become a Christian as well, so she joined George in martyrdom. His body was returned to Lydda for burial, where Christians soon came to honour him as a martyr.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

Mount Athos Monks deeply appreciate the historical and spiritual significance of the place where they live. They try to use everything around them for the glory of God. Even perishable materials that seemed to have no use in the past are now utilized by Greek Orthodox Monks. Thus, old woods that are found after the renovation of Holy Cells are used thanks to the wisdom of Greek Orthodox Monks. Woods that used to be supporting beams in the past are now used for the creation of these collectible icons. They continue to carry the Athonite blessing of Mount Athos since they come straight from this holy place. Thanks to Mount Athos Exhibition, these collectible icons can be found in the hands of people who are now able to purchase real treasures of unique spiritual value.
