Engraved Lithography with the Resurrection

A lithography with the representation  of the Resurrection. In Christian theology the death and resurrection of Jesus are the most important events, a foundation of the Christian faith and commemorated by Easter. His resurrection is the guarantee that all the Christian dead will be resurrected at Christ’s second coming. On the basis of the icon of the Resurrection, between the steep cliffs, a dark abyss opens. Above the cave, in the center of the image, the winner of death, Jesus Christ arises. The composition of the icon has been particularly well studied, even to the smallest details. Everything, from the shape of the rocks to the proportion of the colors, contains a deeper meaning and obeys the laws of the Byzantine art of iconography.

Engraved Lithography: Characteristics

A wonderful icon, which has been created with the technique of lithography and is upgraded in quality and aesthetics thanks to the engraved natural wood, but also the gold leaf, which is used in the background of the representation. The technique of lithography is very widespread and is taught in the iconography workshops of Mount Athos, while at the same time it is used by several monks to create exceptional works of art. At this icon the monk used a lithographic copy of Byzantine art to create this artwork, while it is worth mentioning that the natural wood of the icon is worked exclusively by hand.
