Description

Icon with Synaxis of the Archangels on Naturally Aged Wood

At this beautiful icon we have the representation of Synaxis of the Archangels. On November 8th the Greek Orthodox Church celebrates the Synaxis of the Supreme Commanders Michael, Gabriel and Raphael and of the other bodiless and heavenly orders. The word synaxis means the gathering of believers to celebrate a feast or to make a remembrance of a saint. This feast also has a special meaning because it’s the gathering of the humans with the angels.

Because of the fall of the devil and his angels, this feast is the celebration of the «sobriety and unity» of the rest of the angelic powers who stayed loyal to God. According to Orthodox tradition we celebrate also the contribution of the angels and archangels and their help and support in the war against the dark powers and the devil. We celebrate this feast of unity between angels and humans.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

The naturally aged wood that was used for this particular icon comes from Mount Athos and specifically from a cell that was renovated after the damages it has suffered through the years. Renovation works were necessary to remain in good condition so monks can continue to live there.

During renovation works monks are keeping the old pieces of wood and they are turning them into these excellent works of art. The wood has been carefully cut and preserved by monks with excellent techniques on processing wood. On the front they placed the canvas with the representation of Synaxis of the Archangels. On the back side of the icon two parallel cross – beams have been placed to support the image as well as a leather hook.
