Description

Icon with Virgin Mary Vrefokratousa on Naturally Aged Wood

A beautiful icon of Virgin Mary Vrefokratousa on wood of natural aging. The serigraph of Virgin Mary depicts the Mother of God holding baby Jesus 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 is little Jesus. 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.

Blessed Wood that Came Out of Paradise

That piece of naturally aged wood used to be part of a door leaf at a cell at Mount Athos. When the cell was renovated because it has suffered many damages through years monks kept the pieces of that old wood to use them as a base at the icons they create. Renovation works were necessary so the cell could  remain in good condition and monks can continue to live there. Every part of this cell is connected with the monks who lived there and carries within blessings and prayers from many years ago. At Mount Athos there are dozens of cells and some of them are located there for centuries. The old wood has been carefully cut and preserved by monks with excellent techniques on processing wood.
