Compliments to Chris!

Sucevita, Romania

Especially for translating the text which is in Byzantine! "In this wall painting one is St. Theodore Tiron and the other St. Theodore Stratilatis (Stratilatis is something like a victorious army commander)."

The names in all these wall-paintings are in byzantine writing.
And as far I can see, the paintings in this Monastery look in a very good condition.
Great shot.
