Great holmertz 2018-02-13 2:45

Hello Jorge,
The painted ceiling is very attractive and you show it in this beautifully framed composition. You also handled the light well. One question arises, or rather two: was there no painting at all before, so this was brand new, or is this a restored version of an old painting?
Kind regards,
Gert

If I am not wrong the ceiling had no murals before, but when it was restored in 19th century they decided to add this mural in that part of the ceiling, the other part has no murals. we can think it wasn't a good idea, but after so many years it was included in the soul of the old temple. in english cathedrals is usual to find modernist sculptures, some of them are even nudes and some chocking.

take care
jorge
