Ornaments in the church of Etropole Monastery “Holy Trinity”, Bulgaria
Technique: a seco, acrylic paint
Zybo Sylvens, 2008/ 2009
In 2008/ 2009 I pained many ornaments and decorations in the church as a part of the team of Prof. Sasho Rangelov, author of the whole project.
The Etropolski Monastery “Holy Trinity” is a Bulgarian Orthodox monastery near the town of Etropole in west-central Bulgaria (80 km from Sofia).
The monastery was founded in the 12th or 13th century. It includes a large mid-19th-century church and two chapels but there were no paintings on the walls up to 2008/2010.
All the murals are new, not restoration work.
