Photo of the Week: August 2nd

The Orthodox churches throughout Macedonia are adorned with icons painted on walls, ceilings, pillars, doors, and towers. Many of the beautiful works of art are painted in the fresco-technique and date back to the 11th - 16th centuries.
Top to bottom: The dome of the church, prayer candles, the iconostasis, and the bell tower and church.
During our travels to various parts of Macedonia we always make time to stop at an orthodox church to view these works of spiritual art. These photos do not do their beauty justice! You'll just have to come to Macedonia to see them yourself!
