The moldavian engraving art had a special influence over the developing of printing and other domains of plastique arts. Known through the illustrations at Varlaam's "Cazania" (1643), the wood engraving gets new dimentions in creation of M Strilbitchi (sec.XVIII) and reaches the acme of its development in the XIX century due to the masters from Neamt Monastery- Simion, Ghervasie, Teodosie, Iosif and Damian. Their illustrations made in xylographie (woodcut technique) influenced printing area and stimulated the occurrence of a new domain in medieval arts like icon- engraving, which influenced the style and decoration of painted icons.
