Description

Airbrush Technique with Virgin Mary Giatrissa on Naturally Aged Wood 

At this icon Theotokos is the affectionate mother of all people. Christians pray and submit their pain, their problems, their sufferings and their desires to her. Virgin Mary Giatrissa is one of the many epithets used for Theotokos. She is the one who heals the body and soul, who relieves pain and gives courage to people. She is the loving Mother of all Christians. It is estimated that Virgin Mary has about 500 epithets depending on the way She was painted, the place where Her churches and monasteries are or even from traditions. In Greece there is a church dedicated to Panagia Giatrissa, located in Loutraki, Corinthia. That icon came as a gift from Jerusalem, stayed there and later citizens of the town built a beautiful church dedicated to this particular icon of Virgin Mary. There is also a historic monastery in Taygetos, which is dedicated to Panagia Giatrissa.

Blessed Wood that Came Out of Paradise

This naturally aged wood that was used at the icon with the representation of Theotokos came from a renovated cell from Mount Athos which has suffered many damages through years. Renovation works were necessary to remain in good condition so monks can continue to live there. Monks are replacing doors, window shutters or ceiling beams but they are keeping the pieces of wood so they can reuse them. They are cutting and processing the wood with excellent techniques so they can use it later for their artworks such as these icons. This icon was created with the extremely difficult airbrush technique. Specifically the monk created with an airbrush the representation of Virgin Mary on naturally aged wood, a technique that requires concentration, experience and patience.
