Melinama does Illustration Friday: "Momentum"

Hannah and I saw some weird and wonderful frescoes in Bulgaria, and also many icons, made as copies by art students. The one below was one of the strangest and we both promised to try copying it (it's already a copy, of course). It's some weird Wheel of Fortune, plus zodiac (the original seems to omit any female images), and a lot of writing in ancient Church Slavonic which I didn't try to copy.

Any further information on this image would be much appreciated! (Click for a larger view.)

I like the idea of a "Wheel of Life" representing "momentum", at least in an angular sort or way.

Good response to the "momentum" can just feel the wheel of seasons, life, constellations, whatever, turning!

Melinama, interesting that there are no female figures here. Where would you add them?
