Looking at this picture, suddenly you catch yourself thinking - what is the fate of the man shown in the picture? Why this man chose such a difficult and incomprehensible to many of us the way in life? Artist Vasily Karvatskyy, fulfilling his plan to write a portrait monk used the iconic style of his performance is original and unique. The basis for the image taken tree picture which best matches naytonkishe and transmits religious icon-painting theme. Painting as divided into three parts - upper - a monk's cap - skuf'ya, then in the center - the face, and at the bottom - a long beard. Beard groomed, kucherytsya down a very long, till it fits entirely in the image. It is almost completely gray. Grey and mustache, gray eyebrows and this monk, who suggests that he lived a long, complex and difficult life that posriblylo his hair. That face, which at first glance sad and tired, decorated with calm and intelligent eyes. They radiate strength of spirit and belief that this man has done everything right in his life, lived according to God's laws. I 'm sure the truth of the Christian faith, in spite of that part of the world that is repudiated God and Satan. But well still win if the Lord God are such warriors, one of which can be safely attributed and that monk!
