The east wall of the choir has been heavily damaged probably during the years after the Revolution when the church was de-consecrated, sold, and used for storage by a local farmer. Our tour guide told us, however, that this fresco depicts the Apocalypse as recorded in the book of Revelation. The fresco is 'framed' by stone columns with carvings on them.
This is Eve...very lively and very naked! She shares the south wall of the choir with the saint below. I think she's my favorite of all the frescoes. It's hard to think of her as being the evil temptress of Adam, isn't it?
The best preserved and brilliant fresco is this unidentified saint. Since the church's patrons are St. Peter and St. Paul, it's thought that this may be one of them.
I'm pretty hooked on frescoes! But there is an interesting stone sculpture in this church. I'll share it next time.
