Enclosed within a wreath, apart even from angels, God the Father offers His blessings to His Son who joins Him in heaven. Below this mystical scene, is another metaphysical representation in the "protecting the veil of the Mother of God", known in the Russian Orthodox faith as the Pokrov veil. There is a sense of energy and movement, of heightened tension as if a miracle is about to appear. Ornate floral details around the border add a richness similar to the most beautiful Orthodox Churches. Each of the figures is given expressive treatment to emphasize their own character, helping to bring alive a remarkable scene--as God the Father watches from above. - (PF.5230)
