St. Trifon

Material: California Redwood
Dimensions: approximately 30 x 50 x 4 cm.
Location: The cell of St. Trifon at the Monastery of Xenophon at Mt Athos in Greece
Completed: 1993
Particularities: St. Trifon was a young man who was a gardener and a farmer. He suffered martyrdom very young and this is the reason we depict him with no beard and his hair a bit messy, while in his right hand, he holds the cross to show that he was a martyr and on his left hand, he normally holds a flower or a farming tool.
