March of 1997. The small boat approaches the coastline of Ouranoupoli and my first pilgrimage trip to Mount Athos comes to its end.
Various thoughts are already circling my mind. Is this truly the end or is this the beginning of a “journey”?
After several years of pilgrimage to various Monasteries, Sketes and Cells, I had the first ideas of making the Athonite treasuries known and available worldwide!
The blessed experience
At the summer of 2017, a request came from Mount Athos, to work at the "Athos Digital Heritage" project. This was the digital dissemination of the cultural heritage of Mount Athos Holy Monasteries. It included the digitisation of very rare and old books, manuscripts, Holy Icons and other Orthodox masterpieces!
This blessed experience provided me with expertise and knowledge about the art of digitising and archiving artworks. After some months of living and working in this Holy place, that first ideas we mentioned earlier, started taking a real shape!
Nowadays we offer hundreds of Premium Exact replica icons of original creations, handwritten in Mount Athos Monasteries and Shrines all over the world!
