Description

Icon of Holy Lady of Jerusalem (Ierosolymitissa) on naturally aged wood

The most beloved person of the Orthodoxy after the three persons of the Holy Trinity is Virgin Mary. The whole form of Virgin Mary Ierosolymitissa is full of symbolisms and doctrinal teachings. The large eyes see through the heart, the slim nose shows true nobility and freedom from the stench of the world. Her beauty is timeless because it is spiritual.

The Most Holy Lady of Jerusalem is a very popular icon of Virgin Mary because it overlooks the empty tomb of the Most Holy Theotokos at the Sepulcher of the Mother of God in Gethseman-blessing the numerous pilgrims visiting the Holy Land of Jerusalem. This copy of the miraculous icon has been crafted by an athonite monk.

 

Blessed Wood that came out of Paradise

The wood at this icon has been carefully cut and preserved by monks with excellent techniques on processing wood. This naturally aged wood was part of a ceiling beam but when monks renovated the cell and replaced the beam, they thought that these pieces of wood could be used to make beautiful artworks.

On the front of this icon they placed the canvas with the representation of Virgin Mary Ierosolymitissa. 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 dozens of cells and many of them are located there for centuries.
