собор Благовещенский ( - 1930)
ГТГ (1930 )
За кремлёвской стеной у Успенского собора растёт высокое дерево, соединяющее земных владык с небесным престолом.
Овальная икона Владимирской Богоматерь помещена на вершину родословного дерева.
Deposed centrally in the medallion is the Virgin of Vladimir, thus simbolizing the wonder-working icon esteemed as Moscow's palladium. It is enclosed in the branches of a tree rising out of the Kremlin cathedral of Dormition. At its roots are the founding fathers of the state of Muscovy, St Peter the Metropolitan and Ivan Kalita, prince of Moscow, flanked, already inside the depiction of the Kremlin, by the tsar Alexei Mikhailovich (in whose reign the icon was painted), his consort Maria, and his sons Alexis and Theodore. Disposed in the branches are: on the left-hand side - the Muscovite princes of the church and royal rulers, ranging from the bottom up as follows: the metropolitans Alexis, Cyprian, Photius, jonah and Philip, the Patriarchs Philaret and Job, the tsars Fiodor Ioannovich and Mikhail Fiodorovich, and the murdered tsarevitch Demetry; and on the right-hand side - the holy monks and God's fools, again rainging from the bottom up: prince Alexander Nevsky, Sergy of Radonezh, Nicon of Radonezh, Paphnuty of Borovsk, Sergy's disciples Simon and Andronicus, and the sainted idiots Maximus the Blessed, Basil the Blessed and John the Large-hatted. The depicted personages hold scrolls carrying texts from the Acathistus groryfying the Virgin and likening Her to a divine tree.
