Description

Icon with Jesus Christ the Bridegroom on Naturally Aged Wood

A beautiful icon with the technique of serigraph and 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 a 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 save humanity. 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

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. On the back side of the icon two parallel cross – beams have been placed to support the image as well as a leather hook.

 

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
