Description

Icon with Saint Paraskevi on Naturally Aged Wood

A beautiful serigraph with Saint Paraskevi, the Parthenomartyr. She had an excellent education from both secular and scriptural instructors. However having a higher goal in life, Saint Paraskevi rejected any marriage proposals. She left Rome at the age of 30 and began her holy mission, passing through many cities and villages. Antoninus Pius ruled Rome at this time, and eventually heard of Saint Paraskevi’s holy mission. Attracted by her beauty and humility he tried to make her denounce her faith, even promising to marry her and make her an empress. She refused and after that she was thrown into prison.

Antoninus then prepared a large cauldron of oil and tar, boiled the mixture and then had Paraskevi immersed in it. Miraculously she stood in it as if she being refreshed rather than burned. Angered, Antoninus approached the cauldron only to be blinded by the hot steam. But Saint Paraskevi prayed to God and he regained his sight. Some years ago the provincial eparchs Asclepius and Tarasios captured Saint Paraskevi, they tortured her and a little later she was convicted and condemned to death by beheading.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

The history of this serigraph with the representation of Saint Paraskevi has started many years before the monk completes the representation of this holy figure on canvas. The wood was naturally aged as it was 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. In that way the wood continues to live with other usage, by becoming an icon. 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.
