Description

Icon with Resurrection of Jesus Christ on Naturally Aged Wood

At this beautiful serigraph the monk has chosen the theme 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. The 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.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

This naturally aged wood that was used at the icon of the Resurrection came from a renovated cell from Mount Athos which has suffered many damages through years. Renovation works were necessary to remain in good condition so monks can continue to live there. Monks are replacing doors, window shutters or ceiling beams but they are keeping the pieces of wood so they can reuse them. They are cutting and processing the wood with excellent techniques so they can use it later for their artworks such as these icons. These pieces of wood are part of the history of Mount Athos. So monks reuse them and they are giving us a small piece of this history.
