Description

Icon with Virgin Mary Sweetness of Angels on Naturally Aged Wood

This is a beautiful serigraph with the representation of Virgin Mary Sweetness of Angels is placed on a throne as She holds small Christ. The adoration and respect for the Virgin Mary gave her a great number of names. It is estimated that Theotokos has about 500 epithets depending on the way She was painted, the place where Her churches and monasteries are or even from traditions. The epithet Sweetness of Angels means that Virgin Mary is the one who brought joy to angels and the whole world when she gave birth to Jesus Christ.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

This naturally aged wood that was used at the icon with the representation of Virgin Mary Sweetness of Angels 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.
