This fresco represent the Birth of Christ, and it was taken in Kaona monastery near Sabac. Kaona monastery was founded in 14th century, and represents theological and horticultural oasis nearby the city.The fresco is painted in little cave. With little Christ, on the fresco are painted Madonna and his father Josef, all blessed by the angel.
I've posted this picture beacuse, today for the Orthodox Christians starts Christmas fast, and it lasts 6 weeks, until January the 7th - the Christmas day. For all Christians, the fast is time for praying, abstention of animal origin food, bad thoughts and doings.

You show us a really touching picture of the holy family. I like especially the presentation of mother and child and that you included the wall around this fresco. Can I see banknotes at the bottom of you photo...?I wish you a happy and contemplative Christmas time!
Greetings from Germany!

Kakav kontrast, sveci prose milostinju, uvek mi se gadilo to licemerje da pljujemo kapitalizam jer stavlja pare ispred "duhovnih" vrednosti, a sada se u Srbiji i ulaz u crkvu placa...nedavno sam bila na ekskurziji i nisu hteli da puste decu u manastir ako ne plate ulaznicu...
Detalji slike su lepi, donekle mi jasna i poenta samo steta sto se ne vidi potpuno gornji deo.
