Description

Icon with Virgin Mary Vrefokratousa on Naturally Aged Wood

A collectible icon of Virgin Mary Vrefokratousa placed on wood of natural aging. The icon of Virgin Mary depicts the Mother of God holding baby Jesus to her right side and leaning Her head slightly towards Him to symbolize her protection and tenderness. The Mother of God enfolds Her Son with both hands and looks straight ahead with kindness and so is little Jesus. The wood where the icon is placed comes from a restored cell of Mount Athos. The monks took care to keep it intact from renovation work. They aged it according to the traditional techniques they use in the carved temple and used it, transforming it into an icon.

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.
