Description

Lithography with the Baptism of Christ

This is an excellent icon with the representation of the Baptism of Christ. According to Orthodox and Byzantine tradition Baptism of Christ is filled with symbolisms. The Baptism represents His death and resurrection and symbolizes the salvation of the world. In representations of Baptism, Jesus always appears in the centre of the scene in river Jordan while John the Baptist pours water on his head and angels stands on the side. In Orthodox icons of Baptism, Christ is blessing and sanctifies the waters.

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 Baptism of Christ 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.
