Description

Icon with Rise of Prophet Elijah on Naturally Aged Wood

A beautiful serigraph with the representation of prophet Elijah at the moment of his rise or ascension to heaven with a fire chariot which is dragged by fiery horses. Specifically, at that period prophet Elijah and his student Eliseus are travelling in the direction of Jericho. During the journey Eliseus refused to leave prophet Elijah until they arrived at the river Jordan. Αt the river banks prophet Elijah took his cloak, he folded it and then he struck the waters of the river. At that moment the river opened at two and they crossed over to the desert. But while they were walking and talking a chariot of fire with fiery horses grabbed prophet Elijah and ascended to heaven.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

The history of this icon with Prophet Elijah has started many years before the monk completes the representation of this holy figure on canvas. The wood was naturally aged as it was part from a cell at Mount Athos which was renovated. It has been carefully cut and preserved by monks who created these collectible icons. During renovation works monks are keeping the old pieces of wood and they are turning them into these excellent works of art. In that way the wood continues to live with other usage, by becoming an icon. 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.
