This is one of the few frescoes that are still visible. I know from the "Alexander Sarcophagus" in the Topkapi museum how minute traces of paint can be made visible after ages, I wonder if ever someone will bother to restore this church. I think this depicts Christ entering Jerusalem on a donkey, under it the "Christ Pantocrator" theme if I am not mistaken. Then there is someone in a grave, would that be Christ again, or Lazarus?
