This composition is MUSE bearing two wings; one represents kindness the other anger. Luck represented by a horseshow binds the wings of the Russian poet. This assembly of wings and horseshow represent the broken ring of Russian life.
The poet can only reach glory and freedom through this ring and his death. The muse Natalya (his wife) holds Pushkin’s head in its hand as Salome did with the head of Jean the Baptist. Pushkin was the prophet of Russian literature.
