Painting "Christ’s Resurrection" Mount Athos

The original is in Stavronikita Convent on the 2033 m high Mount Athos in Northern Greece. The monk republic on the Holy Mountain Athos was, for centuries, after the fall of Byzantine Empire, the religious, artistic and scientific center of Balkans.

 

This detailed and accurate replica was printed on canvas sealed with chalk primer. Finally the picture was antiquated by hand, using a lavish technique. The gold effects were achieved using composite gold applied by hand. After the icon was fixed on resin-free hardwood, the front face was carefully sealed with wax.

 

The old master icon painter captured in this famous icon the moment when Jesus Christ, in golden garments, shattered the underworld gates and draws up Adam by his hand. Traditionally, in the background is represented a mountain and the writing on the upper line means "The Resurrection".

 

High-quality screen print on canvas and wood with metallic eyelets. Format 28.5 x 40 x 2.5 cm (W/H/D), weight 1 kg.
