This is astoundingly beautiful. Not just the murals, but also the curves.

Is that the line of a modern skyscraper through the back?

I love icons (and I love them even more after going to an icon workshop at a Orthodox Church here).

It's stunning.

This is truly beautiful, the detailing. Reminds you of the beauty in Eastern Europe and my homeland of Macedonia :)
