Description

Icon with Saint John the Theologian on Naturally Aged Wood

An icon on naturally aged wood with the representation of Saint John the Theologian. Apostle and Evangelist John or Saint John the Theologian or even John the Divine was one of the original twelve Apostles and he also wrote the Gospel bearing his name. According to Orthodox tradition Saint John was  a fisherman and he had a brother, who was Saint James another apostle. Saint John was the youngest of the twelve apostles, and especially close to the Lord. This closeness is often portrayed in icons of the mystical supper, where St. John leans on Jesus. Saint John was exiled to the island of Patmos by Emperor Domitian around 90-95 A.D., and it was there that he received and wrote the Book of Revelation.

Blessed Wood that Came Out of Paradise

This is a unique icon, not only because of the beautiful iconography that shows the skills of the monk but also of the wood which was used by the monk who created this artwork. This naturally aged wood was part of a cell at Mount Athos but when monks renovated the place and replaced the beams and doors, they thought that these pieces of wood could be used to make icons. The wood that was used at this icon came from a renovated cell and it has been carefully cut and preserved by monks with excellent techniques on processing wood. Renovation works are necessary at many cells so they can remain in good condition and monks can continue to live there.
