Description

In this small handmade work of art, made by monk Prodromos from the Skete of Saint Anne, Minor on Mount Athos, it is worth noticing its visual quality and semantic role, as the monk describes them in his own way. Diverse contrasts, harmonies and regulatory repetitions, properly tied in a «calm» but at the same time robust geometric structure, ensure the desired results of the synthesis. The oval shape of the composition, integrated in the rectangular shape of the artwork, emphasize strongly its individual components.

The peak of Mt Athos is placed on the vertical axis that divides exactly in the middle the project, giving it the much needed emphasis as a central theme. The four triangles at the four corners of this unique work of art symbolize the four Evangelists, the four gospels, the four cardinal points and the four winds at the four corners of the earth. “And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other” (Matthew 24:31).
