Description

Icon with Virgin Mary Vrefokratousa on Naturally Aged Wood

This collectible icon of Virgin Mary Vrefokratousa on a canvas is placed on naturally aged wood. A beautiful work of art by an iconographer monk at Mount Athos. The icon of Virgin Mary depicts the Mother of God holding baby Jesus to her left side and leaning Her head slightly towards Him to symbolize her protection and tenderness.

The Mother of God enfolds Her Son with both hands and looks straight ahead with kindness and so does little Jesus. At some icons with Virgin Mary Vrefokratousa we can see that Theotokos holds Her Son very close to Her body and other times baby Jesus is sitting at Her lap but without being  tightly hugged.

Blessed Wood that Came out of Paradise

The naturally aged wood that was used for this particular icon comes from Mount Athos and specifically from a cell that was renovated after the damages it has suffered through the years. Renovation works were necessary to remain in good condition so monks can continue to live there. During renovation works monks are keeping the old pieces of wood and they are turning them into these excellent works of art.

The wood has been carefully cut and preserved by monks with excellent techniques on processing wood. On the front they placed the canvas with the representation of Virgin Mary Vrefokratousa. On the back side of the icon two parallel cross – beams have been placed to support the image as well as a leather hook.
