Description

Serigraph with Saint Irene Chrysovalantou on Naturally Aged Wood

At this beautiful serigraph there is the representation of Saint Irene Chrysovalantou. Saint Irene lived in the 9th century AD and she was distinguished for her beauty and noble upbringing. These gifts attracted a distinguished man who asked Irene for marriage and some time later they started their journey to Constantinople. On the way, however, she passed from the monastery of Chrysovalantou.

Irene was impressed so much by the monastery’s atmosphere and the sisterhood’s way of life that she freed her slaves, gave her inherited wealth and dowry to the poor and entered the community, wearing a habit of sackcloth. With humility and obedience she served the sisterhood. When the abbess of the monastery died, Irene, despite her refusal, was appointed her successor. The more Irene was respected for her judgment, holy way of life, and miracles, the more she humbled herself. She sensed her death, which was peaceful. The Church honors the memory of Saint Irene Chrysovalantou on July 28th.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

The history of this icon has started many years before the monk completes the representation of this holy figure on canvas. The wood was naturally aged as it was part from a cell at Mount Athos which was renovated. It has been carefully cut and preserved by monks who created these collectible icons. During renovation works monks are keeping the old pieces of wood and they are turning them into these excellent works of art. In that way the wood continues to live with other usage, by becoming an icon. This wood carries the blessings and prayers of monks outside the borders of Mount Athos. Thanks to Mount Athos Exhibition, these collectible icons can be a great present for our friends and relatives.
