Adding Intellect or The Enlightening

The Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ are covered up to the shoulders with a bell-shaped cloak, a symbol of sorrow and glorification. Angels can be seen sitting on clouds with burning candles symbolizing the light of the truth. The symbolism of the icon reflects the basic idea of Christianity-the idea of Jesus Christ's sacrifice to allow forgiveness of our shortcomings. It is believed that the icon helps in studies and making decisions in difficult situations.
