I’m excited to learn this new tidbit about my hometown, being a painter with an interest in the traditional mural process. There is one passage that I find confusing, however.
“The fresco itself is non-secular in its imagery.” Does the author intend to say that the imagery is religious in nature? If so, I think that would be a much less ambiguous way to put it. It does depict some Christian iconography (Angels, doves, possibly bread and wine). Otherwise, a good article with some cool pics!
