In 2008/ 2009 I pained many ornaments, decorations and figures in the church as a part of the team of Prof. Sasho Rangelov, author of the whole project.
The Etropole Monastery “Holy Trinity” 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.
Therefore all the murals are new, not restoration work.
