Description

Serigraph with Virgin Mary the Life – Giving Spring on Naturally Aged Wood

A unique with the representation Virgin Mary as The Life-Giving Spring or Life-Giving Font of the Mother of God. This is a feast day in the Greek Orthodox Church that is associated with a historic church just west of Constantinople in Valoukli, as well as an icon of Virgin Mary. The feast day of the Life-Giving Spring is commemorated on Bright Friday of each year (the Friday following Pascha), being the only feast day which may be celebrated during Bright Week, while the commemoration of the Life-Giving Spring Icon of the Most Holy Theotokos is observed on April 4.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

The history of this icon 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.
