It describes tender, sensitive women with incredible strength inside.
It shows modern ladies that always keep their families’ happiness, calm and peace.
Sometimes they even protect their Motherland.
The canvas portrays a protecting mother who defends us from a violent world.
A titmouse, a bird, in her hands is blue and yellow and indicates colours and beauty of Ukraine. Hands look like an embroidered towel which is a symbol of defence.
The face is also extraordinary. Reeled dolls are made with such faces. Lines: horizontal – native land, vertical – the road towards God.
