The iconography of the Presentation was based on the story of Luke, because it describes the main plot - a meeting with the elder Simeon saved. This event is expected to man the Bible says about 300 let.V Simon and Mary are covered with hand - because the temple in Jerusalem, which still could be seen in the background image. Christian throne sometimes can be distinguished by a purple canopy, which was used in the Byzantine tradition, as a symbol of the New Testament, or you can see the Gospel, which is the invariable attribute of the throne, and to this day. Sometimes loosen the edge of the canopy, which is also indicative of the time of the New Testament, which opened the entrance to the truths of the Word, which allowed ordinary people to also enter the sanctuary, as the Old Testament Levitical priests.

Stairs, on which there is Simeon, have a special meaning - they have survived in modern temples, because the sanctuary, where there is a throne, where the sacrament of the Eucharist, also above the general area of ​​the temple, at least one step. After all, the Lord's kingdom upper and worldly life - on earth.

It is also interesting to note that Simeon knew the Son of God is still silent child. That is, the righteous are no longer needed especially to hear the word of God and to doubt him, he questioned the Scriptures. He just believed, even in silence. This is also the symbolism of the icon. So, the righteous, and all the people of the Scriptures, always portrayed with a closed mouth, in fact - with tightly closed mouth, which symbolizes the silence and humility, and that the wisdom of God. So Simeon after so many years of waiting, was already in a state of inspiration, he believed that with the help of only one Holy Spirit, sees a Savior. Therefore, it is important to emphasize that the icon of the Presentation - this is not just a pretty symbolic depiction of the story of the Gospel, but direct symbol meet the soul with God, the soul sinful, soul, doubt, soul, learn to wait, to endure, to remain silent, humble touch of holiness can only be covered hands.
