One of the most beautiful and renown works of Serbian medieval art is a fresco painting The White Angel, depicting an angel, sitting on an empty tomb of resurrected Jesus. This well-know fresco is located in the Mileseva monastery, Mironosnice na Hristovom grobu (Myrrhbearers on Christs Grave). It depicts the arrival of the myrrhbearers at the tomb of Christ on Sunday morning, after the events of the Crucifixion. Sitting on the stone is the Angel of the Lord all dressed in white chiton, whose myrrh-bearing arm shows the place of Christs resurrection, and his empty tomb. The halo around His head is a symbol of the divine light or holiness.
