Description

Icon with Virgin Mary Dexiokratousa on Naturally Aged Wood

This icon represents Virgin Mary Dexiokratousa. That means She is holding little infant Jesus on the right side and not to the left, thus called «Deksia», «Deksa» or «Dexiokratousa» – right handed or right side. There is however another version, according to which, Virgin Mary has an intercessory role between people and Jesus Christ.

Virgin Mary is the one who hears and accepts the prayers, the supplications and the requests of all people who turns to Her for help. Virgin Mary Dexiokratousa in the conscience of many people is the Mother of all, who saves everyone who prays to Her. She is the one who stands by them and can wait patiently to hear their prayers so She can mediate for them.

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 of 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 reuse 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.
