Description

Icon of  Saint George on Naturally Aged Wood

This icon of Saint George is placed on naturally aged wood. The holy, glorious and right-victorious great-martyr and trophy-bearer George was a Roman soldier killed under Diocletian at the beginning of the fourth century. He was sentenced to death for refusing to recant his Christian faith. He became one of the most venerated saints and megalo-martyrs in Cristianity and He has been especially venerated as a millitary saint since the Crusades. In hagiography as one of the most prominent military saints, he is immortalised in the legend of Saint George and the dragon.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

Old woods that are found after the renovation of Holy Cells are used again thanks to the wisdom of the monks. Woods that used to be supporting beams in the past are now used for the creation of these collectible icons. They continue to carry the Athonite blessing of Mount Athos since they come straight from this holy place.

Thanks to Mount Athos Exhibition, these collectible icons can be found in the hands of people who are now able to purchase real treasures of unique spiritual value. The wood has been carefully cut and preserved by Greek Orthodox monks. On the back side of the icon two parallel cross – beams have been placed to support the image as well as a leather hook. On Mount Athos there are dozens of cells and many of them are located there for centuries.
