This is a shot of the fresco produced by Mattia Preti. It is inside the Cathedral in Mdina, Malta.
The detail and vibrant colours are truly magnificant to take in.
The entire alter area is like a medieval ‘magical’ place (which in some sense it is)…and really gets you feeling the antiquity and history involved.
The floor is a ‘carpet’ of huge marble and alabaster flat tombstones with family names and their ancestors inside.
The experience – stepping inside – is a mixture of awe, spelndour and spookiness!
