Description

Lithography with the Last Supper

The Last Supper is the final meal that Jesus shared with his Apostles in Jerusalem before his crucifixion. The four canonical Gospels all state that the Last Supper took place towards the end of the week, after Jesus’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem and that Jesus and his apostles shared a meal shortly before Jesus was crucified at the end of that week. During this meal Jesus predicts his betrayal by one of the apostles present and foretells that before the next morning, Peter will thrice deny knowing him. It is well known that the Last Supper is filled with symbolism. It was the Passover meal and Jesus is the sacrificial lamb. He uses bread to symbolize his body. The bread is broken and given to be shared, just as his body will be broken and his life given up for others.

Lithography: Characteristics

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 with the representation of the Last Supper 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.
