THE LADDER OF DIVINE ASCENT - The Ladder is shown cutting through the Icon, ascending from the bottom left, to the top right, and separating the Heavenly from the worldly. Around about the Ladder are numerous pitch-black demons which are besetting those on the ladders with arrows, spears, and chains. These are physical manifestations of the sinful thoughts and temptations which beset us as we walk the narrow path, or the narrow ascent, toward Salvation. Some of those beset with passions are shown falling. To the left, in the upper portion, ministering angels are shown interceding for those on the Ladder, and ready to receive them when they reach Heaven. In the top-right is Jesus Christ Himself, open-armed, to receive all; those on the Ladder, at every stage, have their eyes fixed upon Christ. The only ones who don’t, are those who are already falling, though it is interesting to note that all – whether ascending or falling – hold their hands in the same pious, prayerful manner.
