Description

Serigraph with Saint Symeon on Naturally Aged Wood

According to tradition, Saint Symeon lived in Jerusalem and was very pious, while the Holy Spirit had revealed to him that he would not die before he saw Christ. Indeed, 40 days after the birth of Jesus, the Holy Spirit appeared again and told him to go to the temple. Saint Symeon ran with great joy and waited until Joseph and the Virgin Mary arrived. Then he took the baby in his arms and after looking up to heaven he thanked God, who let him to live this moment. Along with Saint Symeon in the temple was the Prophet Anne, who worshiped the baby Jesus and then thanked and glorified God.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

The history of this icon with Prophet Elijah 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.
