Description

Icon with Virgin Mary Pantanassa on Naturally Aged Wood

Pantanassa means «Queen of All», is one of the traditional epithets of the Virgin Mary in Greek Orthodoxy. The icon of Theotokos Pantanassa, made according ​​to the original icon, which is located at the Holy Great Monastery of Vatopedi. This miraculous icon is portable of the 17th century and is located on the left wing of the north-eastern column of the Catholikon of the Vatopedi Monastery. The first record of the icon’s miraculous powers concerns a young man from Cyprus. When he entered into the church there was a glowing light radiating from the face of Virgin Mary  and an invisible power pushed the young man down to the ground. When he recovered from his fall, he began to weep and confessed that he didn’t believe and was a participant in the black arts. He changed his life and became an Orthodox Christian.

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 piece of 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. 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.
