Description

Serigraph with Saint Nectarios of Aegina on Naturally Aged Wood

 

An icon with the representation of Saint Nectarios of Aegina or the Wonderworker of Aegina, who was officially recognized as a Saint by the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople in 1961. He wrote, published, preached and heard confessions. Many people had regarded Nektarios as a Saint while he was still alive, because of his purity of life and the miracles he performed. In 1904, at the request of several nuns, he established Holy Trinity Monastery for them on the island of Aegina, where he also lived for the rest of his life as a monk.

The first posthumous miracle took place when the shirt of St. Nectarios was accidentally placed on the neighboring bed and a paralyzed man who was lying there was suddenly healed. His blessed memory is celebrated by the Church on November 9th. The funeral of St. Nectarios was attended by multitudes of people from all parts of Greece and Egypt.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

The wood at this icon has been carefully cut and preserved by monks with excellent techniques on processing wood. This piece of naturally aged wood was part of a ceiling beam or a door but when monks renovated the cell and replaced them, they thought that these pieces of wood could be used to make beautiful artworks. The monks, with absolute respect, kept the old pieces of the wood and after the required maintenance they reuse them as a base for these beautiful icons. Renovation works are necessary at many cells so they can remain in good condition and monks can continue to live there.
