Description

Icon with Virgin Mary Glykofilousa on Naturally Aged Wood

An icon on naturally aged wood from Mount Athos. It is Known that the original icon of Virgin Mary Glykofilousa was property of Victoria, wife of the senator Symeon, who, in order to save it threw it into the sea. The icon, floating upright on the waves, reached the arsanas of the Monastery of Philotheou, where it was received with great honour and rejoicing by the fathers of the Monastery. At the point on the shore where they placed the icon, holy water gushed out. The face of Virgin Mary Sweet Kissing (Glykofilousa) is always close to the face of her child. Christ is nesting inside her arms. His look turns to Virgin Mary while She turns her look to Jesus. Virgin Mary is Known by many different epithets that has been given to Her through the history of Orthodox Church.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

The history of this icon with the representation of Virgin Mary Glykofilousa has started many years before the monk completes the representation of this holy figure on canvas. The wood was naturally aged as it was part from a cell at Mount Athos which was renovated. It has been carefully cut and preserved by monks who created these collectible icons. During renovation works monks are keeping the old pieces of wood and they are turning them into these excellent works of art. In that way the wood continues to live with other usage, by becoming an icon. This wood carries the blessings and prayers of monks outside the borders of Mount Athos. Thanks to Mount Athos Exhibition, these collectible icons can be a great present for our friends and relatives.
