Maria's professional academic education, taken in arts school combined with integration of subtle aspects of "alive tradition" in Russian studios of Kiev and Moscow.

"Life of the church is never fully covered by past, it has present and future, and always is driven by the Holy Spirit. And if showing spiritual visions and revelations, witnessed in icons, has been possible before, it can be done now and in the future. It's just a matter of fact, when creative inspiration and boldness to create a new icon will appear." F. Sergey Bulgakov

The Great Inquisitor in a well-known parable of Dostoyevsky is talking to Christ: "Thou hast given him the right henceforth to choose and freely decide what is good and bad for him, guided but by Thine image in his heart.". In earthy categories of thinking, an icon becomes the foremost symbol, as a reflection of God's sense of imminent eternity. The icon, according to the words of father Pavel Florensky, becomes a window into the world of Haven.
