A new super icon

My friend Cha has been boasting (in a very refined, humble way) about the new icon that her Russian Orthodox congregation have been installing on the ceiling of their church building. Well, a mutual friend of ours, Dash, has posted some amazing pictures that she took during the installation of the icon. (As she explains, the icon was written on canvas; the canvas was cut up so that it would fit the barrel-vault of the ceiling; it was plastered in place; then the iconographer filled in the spaces created by installing flat canvas on a vaulted space.)

Please view the pictures here. I expect that you'll be inspired.
