This byzantine icon is a lithography with double varnish layer to ensure vivid colors and waterproof properties depicting Jesus Christ being baptized is an god inspired artwork abiding to the Athonian technique that was gives this icon unique religious and aesthetic value. The vivid representation of Jesus Christ the Life Giver, the only real winner over death, presented strict but fair. With his cruciform sacrifice he won death and sin and brought to the world light and life. «I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies», Jesus says. According to Christianity Jesus is the very source of life — both physical life and eternal life.


The baptism of Jesus is recorded in the Gospel Bible books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. In this story we see that Jesus approaches John and asks to be baptized. John has been proclaiming the Gospel and baptizing those who repent of their sin, want to make right their relationship with God, and await the coming Messiah. John is astonished that Jesus, the sinless Son of God, is asking to be baptized and John feels like he should be the one asking Jesus to baptize him!


Jesus tells John that His baptism is "fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness". Jesus is baptized as a symbol of giving His will up to His Father and the beginning of His earthly ministry. When Jesus comes up out of the water, John sees the Spirit of God descend like a dove upon Jesus and they hear God's voice from heaven say "This is my Son, the beloved, whom I have approved."


This wonderful icon has been crafted on solid natural pine wood and it was carved by hand. The creator of this icon has learned the canonization of iconography in workshops of the Monasteries of Mount Athos, where he was taught the technique of hagiography and the process of handmade artificial ageing, which bears the image with the representation of the scene of Nativity of baby Jesus Christ.
