Description

Icon with Saint Stylianos on Naturally Aged Wood

A serigraph with the representation of Saint Stylianos also known as Stylianos the Hermit. Saint Stylianos is known as a protector of children, especially orphans and that is why he is depicted in iconography holding an swaddled infant in his arms. According to tradition he distributed his inheritance among the poor, and left the city to live in a monastery. His zealous devotion and asceticism provoked jealousy on the part of other monks, so he left the monastery to live as a hermit in a cave in the wilderness, where he spent his time in prayer and fasting. He was known for his love to the children. Sometimes parents were  leaving their children with him for a period of time in order for them to receive some spiritual guidance.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

The history of this icon with the representation of Saint Stylianos 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.
