Description

Icon with Virgin Mary and Prophets on Naturally Aged Wood

A unique serigraph with the representation of Virgin Mary surrounded by angels and Prophets. At this particular icon Virgin Mary is depicted enthroned at the center of the scene occupying most of the space, while to her right and left there are angels. All around Virgin Mary there are the figures of Prophets, who are facing in Her direction like they are addresses to Her. At their open scrolls there are written the prophecies according to which Virgin Mary would be the One to bring to the world Jesus Christ, so He would save humanity. There are also verses in which they are written prophecies about the incarnation of Jesus, about the Passion of the Christ and His sacrifice for the salvation of humanity from sin.

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 or a door but when monks renovated the cell and replaced them, they thought that these pieces of wood could be used to make beautiful artworks. The monks, with absolute respect, kept the old pieces of the wood and after the required maintenance they reuse them as a base for these beautiful icons. Renovation works are necessary at many cells so they can remain in good condition and monks can continue to live there.
