The Ladder of Divine Ascent
The poster depicts monks ascending the ladder towards Jesus in Heaven, at the top right of the image with John Climacus at the top of the ladder, being welcomed by Jesus. The ladder has 30 rungs representing the 30 stages of ascetic life. The ascent of the monks is assisted by the prayers of angels, saints and the community, while demons attack and try to make monks fall from the ladder by pulling them down or striking them with arrows. Thus it’s an image that depicts spiritual warfare. The icon also shows a gaping maw, representing the Devil himself who is devouring a monk who has fallen from the ladder.
