Description

Engraved Serigraph with Virgin Mary Hodegetria

An engraved serigraph with the representation of Virgin Mary Hodegetria. According to Orthodox tradition the prototype has long been in the Katholikon of the Monastery of Vatopedi. However the icon disappeared and was found later at another monastery, like Virgin Mary was choosing the place She wanted to be.

It is said that in 1730 the icon suddenly disappeared from its place, although the gates of the Monastery were locked and was found at the Monastery of Xenophontos. Everyone thought that someone had stolen it, and so the icon was brought back to its old place. But a short while afterwards the same incident happened again. The monks from Vatopedi were now convinced that this was a miracle and decided to respect the will of Theotokos. From that day this icon is at the Monastery of Xenophontos.

Engraved Serigraph: Characteristics

A beautiful engraved serigraph on natural wood. Serigraph is a common technique in iconography and as a result is being taught and used in many iconography workshops including the ones at Mount Athos. At iconographies that are made with this particular technique monks are using modern and traditional methods, which means that the iconographer creates a part of the icon by hand and with less participation of technology.

This icon is crafted with excellent materials on natural wood so it remains intact and with bright colours. The iconographer uses shiny background in gold colour highlighting the forms and the characteristics of the saints and giving visually a polished type effect. Engraved icons incorporates a special technique something that gives the icon an excellent aesthetic style.
