Nicholas Woodcarvers on St. Nicholas Day

06.12.2017

Sonya Machorska

   Nikolay Nikolov of Vidin is the only Bulgarian person included in the "Catalog of the Mother of God", published by the Moscow Patriarchate. In 2017 the Catalog for the first time included materials for artists of contemporary Christian art not only from Russia but also from abroad. The edition includes icons, jewelery, mosaics, architecture, sculpture, small sculpture, ceramics, porcelain, painting boxes, goldwork embroidery and sewing beads, carvings, bone and stone, painting, miniature crafts, monumental art, photography, the work of designers and information about their authors. The aim of the "Catalog maestrov solajnogo christianskiskoskusstvi" is to show the level of development of Christian art and to draw attention to the works of contemporary art.

   Nikolay is "acquainted" with wood-carving at one of Vidin schools where he attends a workshop. Craft engulfs him. After years with a group of friends, woodcutters made the iconostasis of the church in the village of Bukovets. So the "thrill" takes him where he is. Under his talented hands, dozens of works of wood-carving have come out. Nikolay, with particular pride, stood beside the Proskinarium with the miraculous icon of the Virgin Mary (nearly 300 years). He is also proud of the Lord's Throne in the Troyan Monastery, with two cross-crosss in the Lopushanski Monastery, with the church plate in various Bulgarian churches and most of all in Vidin.

   The passing year brings another joy to Nicholas - he participates in the Fifth International Bianale, organized by the Orthodox Theological Faculty of VTU "St. St. Cyril and Methodius "in two years.

   Named after St. Nicholas the Miraculous Wonderworker or St. Nicholas, the master craftsman continues to work miracles with his hands and mind, decorating the most holy places for Orthodox Christians and leaving a trace behind. Because he knows that "things are known in deeds ..."
