Description

Serigraph with Saint Panteleimon on Naturally Aged Wood

A beautiful icon with Saint Panteleimon that has been placed on naturally aged wood from Mount Athos. He was baptized Orthodox Christian by father Ermolaos, who was priest of the Church of Nicomedia. At some point he healed a blind man who later told to the king that he was cured by Panteleimon in the name of Christ. The king ordered to decapitate the healed blind man and bring him Panteleimon. Saint Panteleimon was brought to the king who ordered his torture to deny his faith. In the end, the king ordered to decapitate him. But as soon as the executioner stretched out his hand to cut off the head of the saint with his sword, the sword bent and the iron melted. In front of this event, the soldiers who saw it happening in front of them became Christians. The saint, then, voluntarily surrendered to his martyrdom. According to tradition, no blood was poured from his wounds, but milk.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

The naturally aged wood of this icon came from a renovated cell from Mount Athos which has suffered many damages through years. Renovation works were necessary to remain in good condition so monks can continue to live there. Monks are replacing doors, window shutters or ceiling beams but they are keeping the pieces of wood so they can reuse them. They are cutting and processing the wood with excellent techniques so they can use it later for their artworks such as these icons. These pieces of wood are part of the history of Mount Athos. So monks reuse them and they are giving us a small piece of this history.
