"Does not Wisdom call, does not understanding raise her voice? ...Hear, for I will speak noble things, and from my lips will come what is right." (Proverbs 8:1,6)
I have a print of this piece of art on my wall, and love it. The music reminds me of the sung compline service I heard recently....lovely. (Only what I heard was in English not Latin!)
Yes, this icon is very famous and with good reason. I love it, too.
