I wrote Mother of God (Vladimirskaya) in 2004 for my own home collection.
"Mother of God, the Savior, the Angels and the Saints – is a source of inexhaustible inspiration for Alla Ponyatovskaya. Retrieving their visual images of infinite light, the artist exercise the wisdom, warmth and compassion, but, above all, a willingness to understand and empathy, infinite mercy, which is so severely lacking in the earthly world. She then becomes a bridge, a kind of staircase between worlds, listening and contemplating, penetrating with her heart and mind in the warm light of the Savior." - Elena Khripkova, Ph.D., Member of the Association of Art Critics (AIS)
