Save the White Angel

andjeologo_1_5in_web.gifSave the White Angel of Mileseva

In 2001, the BLAGO Fund of the Serbian Unity Congress undertook an action of saving the most damaged frescoes of the Monastery Mileseva. Among them was the world renown fresco of the White Angel.

The centuries-old existence of a people and its cherished relics on the fresco walls have seen times both trying and rewarding. We are blessed to have been both witnesses and agents to a transformation whereby the countenance of our Holy Father, St. Sava, shines with a renewed glow and brilliance, as do those of all the Nemanjic statesmen.

Javljam se tek sada, posto sam se uverio da je sve u redu! Nisam to ucinio zbog sumnje, nego zbog toga da se ne "obrukamo" na najosetljivijim poslovima i u fazi "finisiranja". Posto je potvrdjeno iz uprave, ja sam imao hrabrosti da trazim blagoslov vladike za radove na Belom andjelu. Do tada nisam smeo to da uradim. Iz taktickih razloga ako se kojim slucajem desi da ne mogu da zavrsim zapocet posao. Blagoslov je dosao.

Fund BLAGO (Treasure) of the Serbian Unity Congress continues its work on the preservation and restoration of the most beautiful frescoes of our medieval art. The financial aid provided last year, allowed for the urgent restoration of the renowned frescos White Angel and the Last Supper.

For the past few years, the BLAGO Fund team has been very active in trying to preserve and promote Serbian cultural treasures.Apart from the inherent satisfaction of such constructive efforts, there are added rewards to direct field work.In particular, while on location at the Mileseva Monastery last summer, the team was thoroughly impressed by the beauty of the church, its surroundings, and above all, its fresco paintings in their natural setting.
