Symbol of divine revelation. On the Greek mosaic of XI century is represented Christ, holding in hands the Bible. As asserts Borges (Jorge Luis Borges. Letters of God) any book is a ramified labyrinth and, going on it, it is always possible to encounter the Book of the Books. Translucent, nacreous colors emphasize virgin purity of image of Mary holding baby Jesus, wings of the butterfly behind her personify the soul aspiring to the blue skies. Symbolism of the picture where the figure of Virgin Mary seemingly merges with the Book of Books, associates with figurativeness of the fresco “Annunciation” pictured by Italian master of Early Renaissance Fra Angelico. It represents Archangel Gabriel appearing before Maria as she was absorbed in reading the Bible – the passage in the Book of Isaiah, where was spoken about the virgin who will give birth to the son.
