(city of red fir)

The Holy Mother, enchanted by autumn, is surrounded by
wild vines, birds of paradise, and foxes.

 Jerzy Harasymowicz, Madonna z Krasnejjedli

The Madonna with arms outstretched seems to grow out of the forest floor like a beautiful red fir tree. The prominent reds and blues of the forest birds and animals are repeated in the Madonna's gown and hair.
