P7110497ac Several Faith Symbols on Yaroslavl Assumption Cathedral
Perched on the magnificent cross this bird is as a St Spirit presnce despite the protecting needles!!! About the crescent at the cross base: it could represent an anchor emblematic of faith and hope (the church being a ship of faith on the sea of vanity) or a symbol used by Eastern Byzantine churches or also a sign decreed by Ivan the Terrible to commemorate the victory of Christianism against Tatars Islamic rulers of Kazan; Russia Yaroslavl Assomption Cathedral UNESCO World Heritage.
