Description

Engraved Lithography with Saint Isidora

In a nunnery that existed on an island of the Nile lived a virgin, Isidora, who pretended to be a fool, humbled and humiliated herself, all for the sake of God. The nuns did not approach her, laughed at her and did not eat with her, but she never protested. On the contrary, she did all the work of the monastery without ever complaining. At one point an angel appeared to Saint Pitiroun and asked him to go to the nunnery and find a virtuous woman with a “crown” on her head.

He did so, but when he arrived at the convent and all the nuns gathered in front of him, he did not see anywhere a woman with the crown of holiness. When the “crazy” of the monastery was finally brought before him, he immediately realized that it was the one that the angel told him and fell at her feet and asked for a blessing.

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.
