Description

Serigraph with Saint Nicholas on Naturally Aged Wood

A serigraph with the representation of Saint Nicholas who is the patron saint of sailors. Because of the many miracles attributed to his intercession, he is also known as Nicholas the Wonderworker. According to tradition Saint Nicholas is said to have visited the Holy Land but the ship he was on was nearly destroyed by a terrible storm. Then a miracle happened and he rebuked the waves, causing the storm to subside. According to another story he saved three innocent men from execution. Saint Nicholas appeared, pushed the executioner’s sword to the ground, released them from their chains, and angrily chastised a juror who had accepted a bribe.

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.
