Mount Athos weathered lithography (icon) of Christ, Man of Sorrows, in pine wood with carved decoration.
The icon of the Christ, Man of Sorrows (Extreme Humility), is a symbol of the Passion, which leads to the final humiliation of Christ and his death on the Cross for the sake of man's sins. Christ as Savior gives his battle on the Cross to redeem man from his spiritual death due to his alienation from God. Inside the Tomb is deposited with the Burial and with the Resurrection comes the Love that overcame death. In there the marriage of Christ with the Church took place. The Resurrection of Christ from the tomb is likened to a wedding by Saint John Chrysostom.
