Description

Icon with Virgin Mary Vrefokratousa with Saints on Naturally Aged Wood

A wonderful icon with Virgin Mary Vrefokratousa surrounded by Saints on naturally aged wood. The wood has cracks and embossed texture, elements that give charm to the Byzantine style of the icon. This is a great icon, in which Virgin Mary appears enthroned, while around her a multitude of Saints seem to glorify Her Grace. The name Vrefokratousa is due to the affection and care shown by the Virgin Mary to the little Jesus, whom she holds in her arms. This is one of the many epithets attributed to the Virgin Mary which arises either from the way in which it is attributed to the icons, such as the specific Vrefokratousa, or from the areas where there are temples dedicated to Her name or even from hymns or traditions.

Blessed Wood that Came Out of Paradise

The history of this icon with the representation of Virgin Mary Vrefokratousa 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.
