The painting of the new St. Sava church in monastery Ćelije!
The church is a testament of the famost priest and theologist dr. Justin Popovic who lived in the Ćelije monastery from 1948 until his death in the 70’s. Nicknamed Ave Justin, he was the author of a number of theological works and one of the founders of the Serbian Philosophical Society.

Zdravo Aleksandar. Tebi covik je umjetnik a u mojoj danasnjoj fotki sunce bojadise prirodu. Mislim da u Indiji kad kipari zavrsu kipove njihovih bogova, oci su najzadnja stvar sto se pitura jer tek onda kip dobije duh. Zanima me tehnika hudoznika u ovoj kompoziciji. Pozdrav. Klaudijo.

a fascinating capture this - so original and expressive. A real idea of the labour of love and skill on display here. Shame it is not a bit sharper though, but I expect you were a fair distance away from this artist. Never the less it has charm and impact.
Regards - B.

very uncommon on this site! You were there at the right moment when the painter adds the eyes to the wall painting, and we can guess why he is using a stick not to touch this masterpiece.

I think this is a most original photograph.
From the thumbnail, it has very abstract qualities but on closer observation, the work of a skilled artist is recorded, close up.
It is interesting to see the use of the stick.
It is a pity that this is not sharper but, sadly, it is something that would be impossible for you to revisit.
My warm regards,

Not a photo one can take every day. Different and so interesting. I really like the way you framed it and the fact that he's painting exactly the eyes.
