“Queen of Heaven”. 2005, fireclay.

The image of the Higher Feminine Cosmic Principle is depicted as a synthesis of world iconographic representations. The face of the Queen of Heaven was largely created under the influence of the Byzantine mosaics of the 6th-12th centuries and the sketch for the painting “Queen of Heaven” by NK Roerich for the Church of the Holy Spirit in Talashkino in 1911.

“The Lady will give prayers to the Holy Spirit, the Great Lord. About small travelers admonishing, about God’s ways of visiting, about salvation, intercession, forgiveness. ” (Roerich N.K. About the eternal).
