Mary sits against a rich crimson-coloured curtained background, which recalls 17th-century European Baroque settings for aristocratic portraiture. She holds a ceremonial handkerchief, an iconographic mark of high rank, power and prestige which was already present in the Christian wall-paintings at Faras, Old Nubia present-day Sudan , in the 11th to 13th centuries.
On the opposite page, there is the well-known representation of Saint George on horseback spearing the dragon, which so often accompanies the Tamra Maryam narratives and the Marian icons produced during this period.

May her prayer and her blessing be with her servant [name] for ever and ever. An additional note indicates that at some point the manuscript was donated to a church named Dabra Iyasus by Walatta Takla Haymanot, a woman whose name occurs over many erasures, together with her father, brother and mother. The series of paintings collected here includes the portrayal of Jesus preaching to the Apostles folio 3v , placing the devotion to Mary within a wider Christological context.
This composition creates a certain illusion of depth and establishes a clear relationship among the figures by clearly directing of their gestures and gaze.
In addition, delicate tonal modelling imparts an incipient illusion of bodily volume to Jesus and his Apostles, particularly their faces and hands. This painting thus reproduces some of the pictorial concerns that had been introduced into Ethiopia in foreign engravings.
Rather than simply flattening the scene completely in the traditional manner, the painter unconsciously incorporates some of the representational concerns that had originally inspired these foreign models. Gondarene art reached a high point in the early decades of the 18th century, nurtured by King Iyasus I r. Reflecting the rich cultural life at Gondar and its renewed emphasis on theological discussions, numerous beautifully illustrated books were executed under these monarchs and new pictorial cycles and subject-matter were developed, including many illustrated Lives of Ethiopian saints.
Starting with the Tamra Maryam commissioned by King Takla Haymanot , the use of such images became widespread in subsequent years.
Lágrimas Abençoadas by Camilo Castelo Branco
Fewer than half the available images were used, however, leading scholars like Jacques Mercier to suggest that Ethiopian theologians might have refused certain images. In any case, it was not a case of slavish copying. Rather, the Ethiopian artists borrowed selected visual motifs, re-working them into their own complete verbal-visual theological and artistic statements.
An isolated engraving by Raphael Schiaminozzi, dated , was also used for the scene depicting Jesus praying on the Mount of Olives.
The Ethiopian artist unified these visual sources by means of a gigantic representation of Christ emerging from the clouds, which appears in each composition but not in the original engravings , dominating it with his powerful presence and all-embracing gaze. In this inter-textual process, Christ now functions as the great narrator for the human story, visually unifying all the different narrative — and therefore temporal — moments. In visual terms, the finished Ethiopian book thus makes the whole history of humanity dependent on this Christ-centred belief to a far greater extent than the European models did.
