Description

Icon with Virgin Mary Eleousa on Naturally Aged Wood

A beautiful serigraph with Virgin Mary Eleousa. According to tradition the original icon was found in Thessalia, at the village Xyniada, by a child who saw Theotokos. Virgin Mary appeared at the 8 year old by the name Athanasius Syros, while he was playing. She told the little boy that he had pure heart and She also told him how to find Her icon. The boy told that to the villagers and to his parents but none of them believed him. Years later an excavating machine came to Xyniada in order to open the streets of the village, but during the excavations they found under the ground the icon of the Virgin Mary. After that the villagers apologized to the children but most of all to Virgin Mary because they didn’t believed to Her appearance and Her words. At the place the icon was found the villagers built a church dedicated to Virgin Mary Eleousa.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

At this particular icon the iconographer monk used as a base a piece of wood that has long history. The cracks at the surface of the wood confirms its age and the fact that for many years it was part of a door or a ceiling beam or even part of the furnishings in a cell at Mount Athos. When some of these objects had to be replaced 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. They are cutting and processing the wood with excellent techniques so they can use it later for their artworks. Renovation works are necessary at many cells so they can remain in good condition and monks can continue to live there.
