Description

Lithography with the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

At this icon with the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary we can see Archangel Gabriel and Virgin Mary in their unique encounter, where the Great Archangel delivers to her the joyful message that she is going to be the mother of Christ, the Son of God. The iconographer represents in this unique piece of Byzantine art the magnificent theological details of the icon. According the Orthodox tradition the angel went to Virgin Mary  and said, «Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you». But when He saw that She was troubled the angel said: «Do not be afraid, Mary you have found favor with God. You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus».

Lithography: Characteristics

A beautiful lithography with the representations of  the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. 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.
