Icon with Virgin Mary Vrefokratousa on naturally aged wood

The collectible icon of Virgin Mary Vrefokratousa on a canvas is placed on wood of natural aging and decorated with wrought halo. The wood has cracks and relief texture, elements that give aesthetic charm to the Byzantine style of the icon.

This is a unique icon with Virgin Mary. The wood where the icon is placed comes from a restored cell of Mount Athos. The monks took care to keep it intact from renovation work. They aged it according to the traditional techniques they use in the carved temple and used it, transforming it into an icon.

The cracks of old wood testify to the years of its life on Mount Athos and its previous use, to support the cell as a beam.

Blessed Wood that came out of Heaven!

Mount Athos Monks deeply appreciate the historical and spiritual significance of the place where they live. They try to use everything around them for the glory of God.

Even perishable materials that seemed to have no use in the past are now utilized by Greek Orthodox Monks. Thus, old woods that are found after the renovation of Holy Cells are used thanks to the wisdom of Greek Orthodox Monks.

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 Athonite blessing of Mount Athos since they come straight from this holy place.
