A closer view of the Virgin's face:
I love how the Sacred Mother seems to be rising up out of the depths -- She is the Goddess Returning! The Virgin who births the Divine, She is comprised of the ultimate fertility symbol -- eggs. And is it simply a coincidence that She is being displayed at a cathedral sacred to the female saint, Sophia -- She who is Holy Wisdom?
And what an affirmation of traditional Ukrainian culture with all those gorgeous, painted eggs! I'm sure there is a political message as well -- that an independent Ukraine rises from the bottomless black pit that was Soviet Russia.
