Description

Icon of  Virgin Mary Amolyntos on Naturally Aged Wood

In Greek Orthodoxy the name Panagia the Amolyntos means the All-Holy Pure One and She is also called Panagia tou Pathous, meaning All-Holy One of the Passion. The name of Virgin Mary Amolyntos derives from the hymn of the Compline composed by monk Paulos. At this icon Jesus Christ is depicted looking towards the angels who are illustrated above Virgin Mary holding the symbols of Passion, the Cross, the Spear and the Sponge.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

This icon with the representation of Virgin Mary Amolyntos on naturally aged wood is a great gift for our loved ones. This piece of wood was once part of a door leaf in a cell at Mount Athos. After the renovation works monks decides to use it for icons. This small piece of wood carries within blessings and prayers from the monks who lived at this cell.

On the front the monk placed the canvas with the representation of Virgin Mary. On the back side of the icon two parallel cross – beams have been placed to support the image as well as a leather hook. On Mount Athos there are over 140 cells and many of them are located there for centuries. These pieces of wood are part of the history of Mount Athos. So monks decided to reuse them and give us a small piece of this history.
