Who has taken you, Virgin, up into heaven

In this vertical composition, a moment of apostles’ surprise is portrayed. Through her glance and embrace the Blessed Virgin Mary, being taken up into heaven, indicates us her heavenly mission. Through its colorfulness, this dynamic composition divided into two parts – an open heaven and the earth – helps with a more expressive perception of this mystery.

The composition of the twelve apostles contains four plans which are bound by farewell gestures of the hands. Perceiving the details of every single apostle we may observe various experiencing of this moment, and that draws us deeper into the event in the hope of glorification of the body of every believer in Jesus Christ, who mysteriously dwells in the tabernacle under this painting.
