Description

Serigraph with Jesus Christ the Bridegroom on Naturally Aged Wood

A beautiful 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 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

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.
