Blessed Wood that came out of Heaven!

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 cosmic people who are now able to purchase real treasures of unique spiritual value.

Monks tend to accompany their work with prayers while the creation of these unique works of Byzantine art is one of their daily occupations.

Blessed Mount Athos Woods – Preservation
