The Story Behind This Icon:

The icon of Christ the Bridegroom is one of the most special depictions of Jesus himself. He is illustrated in a state of total humility, with a crown of thorns and a somber look. The name “Bridegroom” itself highlights Christ’s love for the Church, his “Bride”. 

The icon of the Bridegroom is prominent in Holy Week, as it is processed on Palm Sunday Evening and left out until Holy Wednesday. 

***

This icon is made of solid, natural limewood (Tilia) that has been prepared by hand using traditional methods and organic materials. The background is comprised of 22 Karat gold leaves that were meticulously applied by hand, piece by piece.  

All of our icons are reproduced according to museum print standards and are authentic replicas of Holy Icons from Mount Athos and elsewhere.
