Icon of the Lord's Entry into Jerusalem

The great feast of the Entry of the Lord into Jerusalem is filled with both sorrow for the upcoming torment of the Savior on the cross, remembered in the following week, called Passion, and the pre-Easter joy of the Resurrection.

The source of the iconography of the Lord's Entry into Jerusalem is the Gospel, which tells how Christ, sitting on a young donkey, accompanied by disciples on the eve of the Jewish Passover, enters the city in which He will be handed over to be crucified. A crowd of people greets the Savior at the gates of Jerusalem, shouting praise and covering the road with palm branches cut from trees.

In the procession of the Lord riding on a donkey, the Old Testament prophecy about the King of Israel was fulfilled: “Rejoice with joy, daughter of Zion, rejoice, daughter of Jerusalem: behold, your King is coming to you, righteous and saving, meek, sitting on a donkey and on the colt of a donkey who has been yoked.” (Zech. 9:9).

The Entry of the Lord into Jerusalem is a Christian holiday celebrated on the Sunday preceding Easter Week, that is, the sixth Sunday of Great Lent. In Russian liturgical books it is also called Flowering Week, and in common parlance Palm Sunday, which is due to the fact that palm branches in Slavic countries were replaced with willows.

The holiday symbolizes, on the one hand, recognition of the mission of Jesus Christ, and on the other, a prototype of the entry of the Son of Man into Paradise.

The icon is made by printing on a wooden board. Paints are mineral, do not fade with time. The thickness of the board is 2 cm. The board is covered with soil by hand. The image is covered with wax. Each icon has a metal mount on the back side so that you can hang the icon on the wall.

Our icons are made by Orthodox craftsmen. You can read more about the technology here: https://iconsofsaints.com/pages/how-is-the-icon-made
