Serigraph with The Nativity of Jesus on Naturally Aged Wood

A serigraph with the Nativity of Jesus or Birth of Christ, which has long been counted as one of the biggest feasts. Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world, was born of the Most Holy Virgin Mary in the city of Bethlehem during the reign of the emperor Augustus. According to Orthodox tradition Jesus was born in Bethlehem and since there was nowhere for Mary and Joseph to stay in the town, the infant was laid in a manger while angels announced his birth to a group of shepherds who worshipped him as Messiah and Lord.

The Nativity is one of the greatest and most joyful events in the history of the world. The angel said to the shepherds, «Behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people». The depiction of the nativity has been an important subject for Christian artists since the 4th century.

Blessed Wood that Came Out of Paradise

This is a great icon, not only because of the beautiful iconography that shows the skills of the monk but also of the wood which was used by the monk who created this artwork. This naturally aged wood was part of a cell at Mount Athos but when monks renovated the place and replaced the beams and doors, they thought that these pieces of wood could be used to make icons. The wood that was used at this icon came from a renovated cell and it has been carefully cut and preserved by monks with excellent techniques on processing wood. Renovation works are necessary at many cells so they can remain in good condition and monks can continue to live there.
