Description

Icon with Virgin Mary Protector of the Unborn Children on Naturally Aged Wood

A beautiful serigraph with Virgin Mary depicted here as the Protector of the Unborn Children. This icon depicts Virgin Mary lovingly holding in her arms her Son and an angel of the Lord, who has in his arms a bleeding baby. This is a symbolic depiction of children not born with abortions. The look of Virgin Mary expresses her deep love for all the children but also her sadness for all those babies who did not have time to see the light of the world. The little Jesus with his little hands also holds this bleeding baby, emphasizing his purity.

Blessed Wood that Came Out of Paradise

This naturally aged wood that was used at the icon with the representation of Virgin Mary came from a renovated cell from Mount Athos which has suffered many damages through years. Renovation works were necessary to remain in good condition so monks can continue to live there. Monks are replacing doors, window shutters or ceiling beams but they are keeping the pieces of wood so they can reuse them. They are cutting and processing the wood with excellent techniques so they can use it later for their artworks such as these icons. These pieces of wood are part of the history of Mount Athos. So monks reuse them and they are giving us a small piece of this history.
