Iconography Project Underway!

Iconographers Dmitry Shkolnik, Vladimir Grigorenko and Aleko arrived to begin writing frescos on the dome, pendentives and narthex.  From the photos you can see Aleko painting the decorative features as the Pantokrator takes shape in the center of the dome.  To give a sense of scale, the diameter of the central dome golden circle is more than 8 feet.   All are welcome to visit the church anytime and view the extraordinary work.  The iconographers will take a break and return in July to complete the frescos.  A special thank you to all those who have contributed to this effort!  Please check back for updates, photos and special events in conjunction with this project as we want to share these beautiful "windows to heaven" with you.  For further details on the planned frescos, please click here.
