Blessed Wood that came out of Paradise

The wood that was used at this icon came from a renovated cell at Mount Athos.  On Mount Athos there are over 140 cells and many of them are located there for centuries. Renovation works are necessary to remain in good condition so monks can continue to live there.

Woods that used to be supporting beams in the past are now used for the creation of these collectible icons. They continue to carry the blessings of monks from Mount Athos.

On the back side of the icon two parallel cross – beams have been placed to support the image as well as a leather hook.
