Engraved Lithography with Saint Anne

Saint Anne was the mother of Virgin Mary and is considered the protector of childless couples. She holds an important position in the Orthodox religion, while on Mount Athos she is considered one of the most beloved persons, as the mother of the Most Holy Theotokos. According to tradition, Saint Anne was the wife of Joachim and since the couple had no children, she begged God day and night to give them one.  Eventually, their request was granted and God sent an angel telling them that they would have a child whose name would be remembered by all the world. And indeed Saint Anne, who was old and her husband had a baby girl, whom they christened Mariam.

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.
