Title: Nighttime Angel
Artist: Filippova Anna
Size: 1x1x1
Size (inches): 3,75x4,5x0,75
Price : $75 SOLD!


This charming picture that is inserted in the frame covered with beautiful multicolored patterns is painted in the Fedoskino style by an unknown artist. It shows an angel releasing a bird from the cage. This painting is rather symbolic as according to many religions a bird is associated with the soul of a man. So it can be interpreted as the following: the kind angel releases the soul of a man tormented by a sin or a suffering; this torture is presented here like the cage. The scene is painted in the beautiful blue-greenish palette with the addition of gold paint. Some parts of the angel's figure (the head and the wings) are extended on the frame. The frame also includes the painting of the released bird, white roses, and fir-trees. The scene is painted on the paper and then covered with glass. The backside includes the artist's initials (F.A.). The picture may by hung on the wall with a white cord.
