A decorative frieze on the centre of the ceiling of St. Blaise Church, Calenzana,
on the French Island of Corsica
. A large crack is visible at the top of this shot,
many smaller cracks are evident on close inspection of the background (ceiling).
The rather plain exterior belies the more ornate interior of the Church.

Construction of this village Church was commenced in 1691, but it was not completed
for sixteen years. Subsequently, 1722 saw the appearance of Acanthus leaf topped
capitals and the high altar was added in 1750. At the time of our visit (July 2011)
restoration works were in progress using time honoured building methods.

Information on the Church and it’s decorative works appears to be limited on the
internet. Dates were sourced from Google Books.
