Very nice Galina,
how big is it? Is he inside a curch? A schoool? The Arcangel Michael looks a lot like you! Fantastic mural!

Thank you all!

Here wanted to show another aspect of my interests - the medieval mural paintings in the ortodox churches of Bulgaria. Two years ago I finishd my research of the churches of the village of Arbanasi which date back in the seventeenth century. I fact my doctor degree disertation was based on this research. Here I tryed to work the way the old ortodox masters did simply and very exalted.
