Serigraph with Saint Nikiforos the Leper on Naturally Aged Wood

A serigraph with Saint Nikiforos the Leper, who is considered one of the saints – protectors of the sick people. Saint Nikiforos was a priest from a village in Chania, Crete. He was orphaned early and left home at the age of 13. At the age of 16 and when the signs of the disease that afflicted him, leprosy, began to become more apparent, he went to Egypt and later in Chios in a leper hospital, where Father Anthimos Vagianos, later Saint Anthimos, was a priest. There he became a monk named Nikiforos.

The disease was progressing more and more, but Saint Nikiforos was living in strict fast and he prayed at night for endless hours. Later he and other people were sent to the anti-leprosy Station in Athens. At that time, Father Nikiforos was about 67 years old. His limbs and eyes had been completely altered and deformed by the disease, however a large crowd gathered in the humble cell of the leper monk Nikiforos to receive his wish, while there are many miracles attributed to him.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

The history of this icon has started many years before the monk completes the representation of the saint. The wood was naturally aged as it was a part from a cell at Mount Athos which was renovated. It has been carefully cut and preserved by monks who created these collectible icons. During renovation works monks are keeping the old pieces of wood and they are turning them into these excellent works of art. This wood carries the blessings and prayers of monks outside the borders of Mount Athos. Thanks to Mount Athos Exhibition, these collectible icons can be a great present for our friends and relatives.
