Description

Serigraph with Saints Anargyroi on Naturally Aged Wood

A serigraph with the representation of Saints Anargyroi, Cosmas and Damian, who came from Asia. Their parents were an excellent model of Christian spouses. They offered treatment to patients without asking back for money. Accepting no payment for their services led to them being named anargyroi from the Greek word «Ανάργυροι» which means «the silverless» or «unmercenaries» and it has been said that, by this, they attracted many to the Christian faith.

Nothing is known of their lives except that they suffered martyrdom in Syria during the persecution of the Emperor Diocletian. Saints Cosmas and Damian are regarded as the patrons of physicians, surgeons, and pharmacists and are sometimes represented with medical emblems.

Blessed Wood that Came Out of Paradise

That piece of naturally aged wood used to be part of a door leaf at a cell at Mount Athos. When the cell was renovated because it has suffered many damages through years monks kept the pieces of that old wood to use them as a base at the icons they create. Renovation works were necessary so the cell could  remain in good condition and monks can continue to live there. Every part of this cell is connected with the monks who lived there and carries within blessings and prayers from many years ago. At Mount Athos there are dozens of cells and some of them are located there for centuries. The old wood has been carefully cut and preserved by monks with excellent techniques on processing wood.
