Description

Icon with Virgin Mary Sweetness of Angels on Naturally Aged Wood

This is a great icon 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

That piece of naturally aged wood used to be part of a door leaf at a cell at Mount Athos. When the cell was renovated because it has suffered many damages through years monks kept the pieces of that old wood to use them as a base at the icons they create. Renovation works were necessary so the cell could  remain in good condition and monks can continue to live there. Every part of this cell is connected with the monks who lived there and carries within blessings and prayers from many years ago. At Mount Athos there are dozens of cells and some of them are located there for centuries. The old wood has been carefully cut and preserved by monks with excellent techniques on processing wood.
