Description

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. Virgin Mary has a perfectly sculpted halo. The wood has cracks and relief texture, elements that gives 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!

Old woods that are found after the renovation of Holy Cells are used again thanks to the wisdom of the 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.

Thanks to Mount Athos Exhibition, these collectible icons can be found in the hands of people who are now able to purchase real treasures of unique spiritual value. The wood has been carefully cut and preserved by Greek Orthodox Monks. On the back side of the icon two parallel cross – beams have been placed to support the image as well as a leather hook. On Mount Athos there are over 140 cells and many of them are located there for centuries.
