Description

Icon with the Protection of the Mother of God on Naturally Aged Wood

The Protection of the Mother of God is one of the most beloved feast days on the Orthodox calendar among the Slavic peoples, commemorated on October 1. The feast is celebrated additionally on October 28 in the Greek Orthodox Church. It is also known as the feast of the Virgin Mary’s Cerement. In most Slavic languages the word “cerement” has a dual meaning of “veil” and “protection.”

The Greek word Skepi (Σκέπη) has a complex meaning. First of all, it refers to a cloak or shroud, but it also means protection or intercession. For this reason, the name of the feast is variously translated as the Veil of Our Lady the Protection of the Theotokos or the Intercession of the Virgin Mary.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

Mount Athos Monks deeply appreciate the historical and spiritual significance of the place where they live. They try to use everything around them for the glory of God. Even perishable materials that seemed to have no use in the past are now utilized by Greek Orthodox Monks. Thus, old woods that are found after the renovation of Holy Cells are used thanks to the wisdom of Greek Monks. Wood that used to be supporting beams in the past are now used for the creation of these collectible icons. They continue to carry the Athonite blessing of Mount Athos since they come straight from this holy place. Thanks to Mount Athos Exhibition, these collectible icons can be found in the hands of people who are now able to purchase real treasures of unique spiritual value.
