Description

Lithography with Virgin Mary Pantanassa

Virgin Mary Pantanassa means «Most-Holy Queen of All». Pantanassa is a miraculous icon of Virgin Mary from the Holy Monastery of Vatopedi and depicts Theotokos enthroned and holding Her Son. According to tradition the first record of the icon’s miraculous powers is from the witness of Elder Joseph. It is said that one day a young man from Cyprus went to visit the Monastery but when he entered into the church a glowing light radiating from the face of the Theotokos and an invisible power pushed him down to the ground.

When the young man recovered from his fall, he confessed that he didn’t believe to God and that he was a participant in the black arts. But from that moment he changed his life and became an Orthodox Christian. There are many miracles also occurring in Russia, where two identical copies of the Vatopedi icon were sent at the request of the Patriarch of Moscow.

Lithography: Characteristics

A beautiful lithography with the representations of Virgin Mary Pantanassa. 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.
