Description

Icon with Jesus Christ the Bridegroom on Naturally Aged Wood

A serigraph with the representation of Jesus Christ the Bridegroom. Our Lord is the Bridegroom of the Church and of every human soul. It took the form of human and came to the world from its immense love to people. To save us from death and give us the Paradise again. Jesus was humiliated and led to the martyrdom of the Cross to lift human. Christ Himself likened His coming with marriage, and Himself with a Bridegroom. The significance of this likeness is that a «sacred marriage» of God and humanity takes place in the face of Christ. On the head he has the crown of thorns worn by the soldiers who wanted to humilliate him. The parable of Jesus is caused by the physical but also the mental pain that he is experiencing. He carries the sin of all the world on his shoulders. He is led to martyrdom and the cross to give salvation to mankind.

Blessed Wood that Came Out of Paradise

This naturally aged wood that was used at the icon of Jesus Christ the Bridegroom 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.
