Photographer's Note

This photo was taken in New Jerusalem Monastery in the town of Istra not far from Moscow. One of the most impressive Moscow region monasteries, it once was a place of pilgrimage for believers from every part of Russia. Among other buildings there is very unusual underground church of Constantin and Elena, which looks as though it has submerged into the ground. This is where I saw this scene. What attracted me was almost identical composition of the icon, which the woman looks at, and the scene itself.
