Blessed is the fruit of thy womb

A piece from a cedar tree trunk from the small island of Chryssi on the southeast edge of Crete- The shape of Archangel Gabriel, Virgin Mary and the light emerging. I ve taken advantage of the shape of the wood, for the wing, and also the empty space on the Holy Mother’s body as an outlet for the Light- And that was exactly what She was carrying “The light of the world”

“Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb”: The title for this icon of Annunciation and a video of the final step: Polishing the wax varnish applied on this cedar tree trunk with the icon  painted with eggtempera.

Contemporary byzantine art enthousiast. Working in an old warehouse studio in the island of Crete. Love painting on driftwood, repurposed wood, pebbles and all kinds of irregular shapes.
