L. I. Reznik has energy-wise elevated the work
The Christ has said: «Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also». The subject of three magi tells us about a very important mystery of transferring a treasure as the highest value – consisting of gold, and frankincense and myrrh – into “the Christ's life”. There takes place in the magi an inner reorientation from the material life to the immortal and eternal principle of the «life more abundant», as the Savior has figuratively told. A rich young man from a well-known Gospel episode could not do that what the magi did. That is why those wise men are blessed before God. In the composition of this painting, Jehovah’s face occupies the central place for he is the main source of Divinity. The three kings and magi who symbolize the spiritual Triad are a constituent element of the greater organism of I AM THAT I AM and the Lord Jehovah. The Christ-Child – the owner of the Rod of Initiation which transforms and sanctifies – is blessing the followers of the World Messiah on bended knees.
