Description

Icon with Virgin Mary of All Hope on Naturally Aged Wood

A beautiful icon of Virgin Mary of All Hope on naturally aged wood from a cell at Mount Athos. The authentic icon is located at the church of Saints Constantine & Helen at Ippodromiou Square in Thessaloniki. According to tradition the icon came to Thessaloniki with refugees from Asia Minor at 15th century. Experts in iconography came to study the icon, made preservation works and cleaned it carefully. At the year 1931 local newspapers had written that the icon of Virgin Mary of All Hope begun to weep.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

The history of this icon with the representation of Virgin Mary has started many years before the monk completes the representation of this holy figure on canvas. The wood was naturally aged as it was 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. In that way the wood continues to live with other usage, by becoming an icon. 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.
