Description

Antique Serigraph with Virgin Mary Kasperofskaya

An antique serigraph with the special representation of Virgin Mary Kasperofskaya. Virgin Mary Kasperofskaya is the most beloved figure of Theotokos for the orthodox Christians in Russia and east Europe. The prototype of this icon is located at the Cathedral of Assumption of Virgin Mary in Odessa, Ukraine and is considered as one of the most miraculous icons. With this Cathedral is highly connected the reverence with Virgin Mary Kasperofskaya. In front of this icon has been down on his knees and prayed the archbishop Innocent at the years of the  Crimean War at 19th century begging the Virgin Mary to protect the city. Indeed his prayers were heard and since then Virgin Mary Kasperofskaya became a symbol for the Orthodox Christians of that region. This is a unique icon of Virgin Mary that moves the viewer with a look full of emotional intensity while She embraces protectively Jesus Christ.

Serigraph: Characteristics

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 traditional methods, which means that the iconographer creates the biggest part of the icon by hand and with less participation of technology. The artificial maturation of the iconographies is also handmade and gives at these works of art collectable value. These are exact copies of Byzantine art with an intense charm of old. This iconography is created with excellent materials in natural wood and the painted surface is covered with pure beeswax so it remains intact and with bright colours.
