Description

Engraved Lithograph with the Resurrection of Jesus Christ

Wonderful image, with a relatively rare theme, that of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, a theme filled with powerful symbolism.

Jesus Christ can be seen in the center of the image, wrapped in white light, while underneath a dark abyss emerges, that is, Christ is presented as the only victor over death.

“And rise again on the third day according to the Scriptures,” the Creed says of Christ’s triumphant resurrection from the dead. The Resurrection of Jesus symbolizes the passage from death to life, while at the same time through the Resurrection Life and Death acquire another meaning.

Engraved Lithography: Features

The work is crafted entirely by hand, without machinery, in carved natural wood. It is the work of hagiographer Athanasios, a student of the Athonite Ecclesiastical Academy, who remains faithful to Byzantine art as he was taught it on Mount Athos. His works are covered with pure beeswax so that they remain unchanged over time.

In this particular icon, the hagiographer monk used the technique of lithography to create a work of unique beauty. Specifically, using a lithographed copy of Byzantine art, the monk created this work following the traditional method of artificial aging, as taught in the hagiography workshops of the Athonite State. In fact, the artificial aging of hagiography is handmade, a process to which the monks of Mount Athos pay particular attention.
