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.
