Description

Icon with Jesus Christ Blessing on Naturally Aged Wood

A beautiful icon of Jesus Christ Blessing on naturally aged wood from Mount Athos. This is one of the most common representations of Jesus. The canvas is placed on wood that came from a renovated cell at Mount Athos. The image of Jesus has a sculptured halo and has been crafted on naturally aged wood that came straight from a renovated cell. At this icon Christ is looking directly out at us with his right hand raised in blessing and with his other hand he is holding a book of scripture. Christ is giving His blessing to all people because He is the «Saviour of the World».

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

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

 

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
