Description

Woodcarving icon with Virgin Mary Athonitissa

Outstanding and imposing, Virgin Mary Athonitissa stands as a guard over Mount Athos. It is the Theotokos who, holding the rod of the abbot, leads, protects and guides the monks of the Athonite State.

At her feet are all the monasteries of Mount Athos, the beaches and the nature that adorns the third leg of Halkidiki. Behind her is the sky that covers Mount Athos. To the right and left of her are illustrated some of the countless saints of Athos.

Wood carved icon

The monks at Mount Athos are distinguished for their unparalleled art in the creation of wood-carved objects. Their art appears particularly in the unparalleled beauty of the iconostasis they create for the sacred temples of their monasteries and their cells, but also for the wood-carved icons they make.

The icon of Virgin Mary Athonitissa on a canvas, placed on wood, which is treated by the monks with art and love, is an excellent example of their work to the glory of God.
