Description

Icon with Virgin Mary Amolyntos on Naturally Aged Wood

A beautiful icon with the representation of Virgin Mary Amolyntos on naturally aged wood. In Greek Orthodoxy the name Virgin Mary or Panagia the Amolyntos means the All-Holy Pure One and She is also called Panagia tou Pathous, meaning All-Holy One of the Passion. The name of Virgin Mary Amolyntos derives from the hymn of the Compline composed by monk Paulos. At this icon Jesus Christ is depicted looking towards the angels who are illustrated above Virgin Mary holding the symbols of Passion, the Cross, the Spear and the Sponge.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

At this particular icon the iconographer monk used as a base a piece of wood that has long history. The cracks at the surface of the wood confirms its age and the fact that for many years it was part of a door or a ceiling beam or even part of the furnishings in a cell at Mount Athos. When some of these objects had to be replaced the monks, with absolute respect, kept the old pieces of the wood and after the required maintenance they reuse them as a base for these beautiful icons. They are cutting and processing the wood with excellent techniques so they can use it later for their artworks. Renovation works are necessary at many cells so they can remain in good condition and monks can continue to live there.
