Description

Lithography with Saint Panteleimon

A lithography with Saint Panteleimon. He was baptized Orthodox Christian by father Ermolaos, who was priest of the Church of Nicomedia. At some point he healed a blind man who reported his healing to the king, telling him that he was cured by Panteleimon in the name of Christ. The king ordered to decapitate the healed blind man and bring him Panteleimon. Saint Panteleimon was brought to the king who ordered his torture to deny his faith. In the end, the king ordered to decapitate him. But as soon as the executioner stretched out his hand to cut off the head of the saint with his sword, the sword bent and the iron melted. In front of this event, the soldiers who saw it happening in front of them became Christians. The saint, then, voluntarily surrendered to his martyrdom. According to tradition, no blood was poured from his wounds, but milk.

Lithography: Characteristics

A beautiful lithography with the representations of Saint Panteleimon. Monks are learning the technique of lithography at iconography workshops at Mount Athos so they can create with love and patience these excellent artworks. At this icon the monk used a lithographic copy of Byzantine art to create this artwork. He also applied the process of artificial maturation by hand to give this icon unique aesthetic value. Lithography is a method of printing originally based on the immiscibility of oil and water.
