The “White Angel” is depicted in the frescoes of the composition "Myrrhbearers on Christ's grave" on the southern wall of the church of Christ's Ascension Monastery Mileseva. Its beauty is among the jewels of Serbian art of the Middle Ages. With its magnificence, sublimity and mysticism, White Angel is isolated from the context of the murals and as such passed away as an independent entity. Large and bright eyes reveal the character of the White Angel Darvel eyes. Puzzling eyes of the White Angel bear all the peace. Fresco "Myrrhbearers at Christ's tomb" is of great importance for the history of the church, Serbia, of a time, Serbian medicine, Serbian ophthalmology, showing the past and illuminating our future.
