The Crucifixion Icon

The Crucifixion Icon


Christ is shown here dying on the cross as He fulfills all of the prophecies concerning His Incarnation, Life, and Death that were written in the Law, Prophets, and Psalms concerning Him. 


This icon is a modern one by Monk Michael from Mount Athos.  The Virgin Mary and Saint John flank the Cross as they look on with both wonder at such a mystery and pain at such an agonizing passion and death.  The other Myrrh-Bearing women stand by the Virgin, while the centurion Longinus on the right, who later became a Christian Saint and Martyr, looks up with amazement.


The city walls of Jerusalem are in the background and the skull of Adam is right beneath the Cross, as blood flows down to anoint it for salvation after such a long wait.   


This Icon is produced in a small monastery of the Eastern Orthodox Church in the beautiful southwest of Wisconsin USA. It is believe to be the largest selection of historical icons produced and distributed anywhere in the world.
