Description

Serigraph with The Passion of the Christ  on Naturally Aged Wood

A beautiful serigraph with the representation of the Passion of Jesus Christ. After his arrest on the Mount of Olives, Jesus is led at some point to High Priest Caiaphas, who interrogates him, and then, bound, leads him to the ruler Pontius Pilate, where he is interrogated again. Pilate explains to the high priests that he does not find Jesus guilty of anything and suggests that he should be flogged and set free, but the assembled mob demanded his crucifixion.

Eventually, Jesus is condemned to crucifixion, and according to a local custom, the ruler frees the prisoner Barabbas. Christ surrenders to the soldiers and they gave Him a red cloak, he is also crowned with a crown of thorns and carrying the Cross, he goes to Golgotha, the place of condemnation. There he is crucified between two robbers and while Roman soldiers beats and humiliates him.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

At this particular icon the iconographer monk used as a base a piece of wood that has long history. The cracks at the surface of the wood confirms its age and the fact that for many years it was part of a door or a ceiling beam or even part of the furnishings in a cell at Mount Athos. When some of these objects had to be replaced the monks, with absolute respect, kept the old pieces of the wood and after the required maintenance they reused them as a base for these beautiful icons. They are cutting and processing the wood with excellent techniques so they can use it later for their artworks. Renovation works are necessary at many cells so they can remain in good condition and monks can continue to live there.
