WALL-PAINTING

Close

Murals in the Church of the Deposition of the Robe were created in 1644 by icon-painters Sidor Pospeev, Ivan Borisov and Semen Abramov. The programme follows medieval patterns: in the central dome there is the depiction of Saviour Almighty, in the vaults there are evangelical scenes, on the walls one can see murals, thematically related to the consecrating of the church. The Church of Laying of Our Lady's Holy Robe is dedicated to the Feast of Our Lady, so the idea of the murals is "solemn praise to Our Lady". Two of the four tiers present Our Lady's life scenes, the other two - illustrate the solemn chant - the Great Acathistus. Murals are painted in the fresco technique (i.e on wet plaster) and covered with tempera.
