Engraved Lithography with Saint Anastasia

Saint Anastasia had the gift to heal the sick. Saint Anastasia is characterized as a great martyr because of the tortures she suffered and Pharmacolytria because she was treating the sick and has the power to solve the spells. Saint Anastasia lived in Rome at the time of Emperor Diocletian. She was descended from a wealthy family and was baptized Christian and she was also distinguished for her beauty, education and her wisdom.

After the death of her husband Anastasia distributed her property to those less fortunate and suffering. As a Christian was arrested and tortured. Saint Anastasia’s relics were taken to Constantinople, where a church was dedicated to her. Later, a hand and her head were transferred to the Monastery of Saint Anastasia in Vasilica Thessaloniki.

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.
