Photographer's Note

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.
