Noon (the Rest on the flight into Egypt)

Painting, 1661

Description of the artwork «Noon (the Rest on the flight into Egypt)»

In the picture there is an interesting detail that is not immediately possible to notice in the right corner under the trees the artist painted deer come to drink. In early Christian symbolism the image of the deer thirsting meant the desire of the soul to eternal truth, to God.
