Description

Serigraph with Saints Ten Martyrs from Crete on Naturally Aged Wood

This is a beautiful serigraph with the Saints Ten Martyrs, who martyred in the 3rd century AD, when Decius was emperor and all of them were from Crete. They are Theodoulos, Satorninus, Euporos, Gelasios, Eunikianos, Zotikos, Agathopous, Vassiliadis (or Vassilidis), Evarestos and Movius. All of them had as their main concern the spread of the Gospel on the island of Crete, however the pagans learned their action and reported them to the ruler of the island. He tried to make them change their faith, but seeing that this was impossible, he finally order the soldiers to stone them. The young men stood faithful to Christ and finally, by order of the ruler, the soldiers beheaded all ten of them.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

This naturally aged wood 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.
