I glad that UNESCO protects this ancient church. I'm really impressed with the details sculpid on the stones around the window, did you know what the sculpid things mean?
Thanks for share.

Hi Andre, I hope you are well. A good study of the ornate details and stonework around the old church window. Despite the rather harsh lighting, you managed a sharp and contrasted rendition of the details. I also like the sporadic dots of color added by the greenery.
