Description

Airbrush Technique with Virgin Mary Giatrissa on Naturally Aged Wood

A beautiful icon with the representation of Virgin Mary Giatrissa, which 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 icon is crafted by a monk at Mount Athos with the airbrush technique on naturally aged wood. This wood was once 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. 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. At this icon the monk created the representation of Virgin Mary with the airbrush technique. Specifically he used an airbrush, which is a compressed air tool that looks like a pen and sprays the paint on every surface the monk wants. It’s a very difficult technique that requires concentration, experience and patience.
