Description

Serigraph with Saint Paisios on Naturally Aged Wood

A serigraph with Saint Paisios the Hagiorite who was widely known for his life and asceticism. After his death the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew began his holy process and was ranked Paisios Saint of the Orthodox Church by the Ecumenical Patriarchate on January 13, 2015. The Church celebrates his memory on July 12th.

Saint Paisios lived in the last years of his life in the cell of Panagouda, which he found abandoned. There he worked hard with a crowd of people who visited him by offering spiritual help with his prayers and teachings. At the same time, he continued his intense ascetic life to the point where he would rest a little every day. But he continued to accept and try to help the visitors. He also used to make «stamped» icons as a handiwork which he gave visitors as a blessing.

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.
