Description

Icon with Saint Seraphim of Sarov on Naturally Aged Wood

At this serigraph there is the representation of Saint Seraphim of Sarov was born in 1759 in the city of Kursk in Russia and when he was 18 years old he decided to dedicate his life to God and become a monk in the monastery of Sarov and later was ordained a deacon. During the day he follows all the regulations of the monastery, but at night he leaves in the forest, at his deserted cell, where he spends his hours in prayer.

Many people came to the monastery to confess and many miracles have been recorded by patients. In 1833 AD after having taken the Holy Communion and after the end of the Divine Liturgy he asked for forgiveness from all his brothers. A little later they found him kneeling in a prayer position in front of the icon of the Virgin Mary, with the cross on his neck and his hands on his chest in the shape of a cross. He died there.

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, are keeping 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.

 

As this icon is handmade and the wood processing is made exclusively by hand there might be small differences at the wood but not on the representation
