Description

Icon with Mourning Virgin Mary on Naturally Aged Wood

This is a serigraph with Mourning Virgin Mary, a rare depiction of metabyzantine hagiography which has been placed on a wood with long history. The Mourning of Virgin Mary is a beautiful icon with Theotokos holding in her arms, the dead body of Her Son, Jesus Christ after the Descent from the Cross. At this icon we have the representation of Virgin Mary the Mother who lost Her only Son and She is Mourning for His death. Virgin Mary is depicted holding the lifeless body of Jesus Christ and supporting with Her hand His head. At Her face we can see the pain and sorrow of a mother who just lost a child.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

The history of this icon with the representation of Virgin Mary has started many years before the monk completes the representation of this holy figure on canvas. The wood was naturally aged as it was part from a cell at Mount Athos which was renovated. It has been carefully cut and preserved by monks who created these collectible icons. During renovation works monks are keeping the old pieces of wood and they are turning them into these excellent works of art. In that way the wood continues to live with other usage, by becoming an icon. This wood carries the blessings and prayers of monks outside the borders of Mount Athos. Thanks to Mount Athos Exhibition, these collectible icons can be a great present for our friends and relatives.
