Description

Antique Serigraph with Virgin Mary Sweetness of Angels

At this icon Virgin Mary Sweetness of Angels is placed on a throne as She holds small Christ. The adoration and respect for the Virgin Mary gave her a great number of names. It is estimated that Theotokos has about 500 epithets depending on the way She was painted, the place where Her churches and monasteries are or even from traditions. The epithet Sweetness of Angels means that Virgin Mary is the one who brought joy to angels and the whole world when she gave birth to 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.
