Description

Lithography with Jesus Christ Pantocrator

Jesus Christ Pantocrator is one of the most common religious images of Orthodox Christianity. The icon depicts Christ with a somewhat melancholy and stern aspect, with the right hand raised in blessing while holding a gospel with his left one. Pantocrator usually translated as «almighty» or «all-powerful». The icon of Christ Pantocrator appears in the dome of most Orthodox Churches. According to Orthodox tradition the highest point of the Church is reserved for Jesus Christ. His Mother and all the other saints, angels and prophets are depicted on the walls immediately below Pantocrator. The iconographic type of Christ Pantocrator, the «all-powerful», is very frequent in later Byzantine art.

Lithography: Characteristics

A beautiful lithography with the representation of Jesus Christ Pantocrator. 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.
