Description

Lithography with the Crucifixion

At this beautiful lithography the monk has chosen the theme of the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Jesus at the cross of martyrdom and below Him we can see Virgin Mary looking at Her Son with agony and deep pain because Her only Son is suffering on the cross. At the left side there is Saint John, the favorite Apostle of Jesus, who stands helpless and watches the Crucifixion. The Crucifixion of Jesus is the ultimate act of love from God towards humanity. Jesus Christ sacrificed Himself and offered to all people atonement and salvation. Crucifixion is one of the most common iconographic themes, as it contains strong symbolism.

Lithography: Characteristics

A beautiful lithography with the representation of the Crucifixion. Monks are learning the technique of lithography at iconography workshops at Mount Athos so they can create with love and patience these excellent artworks. At this icon the monk used a lithographic copy of Byzantine art to create this artwork. He also applied the process of artificial maturation by hand to give this icon unique aesthetic value. Lithography is a method of printing originally based on the immiscibility of oil and water.
