Photographer's Note

Because of the date of the frescoes, the siege of Constantinople is not depicted in the frescoes: the Turks had established control over Central Europe and did not look favorably on this kind of anti-regime propaganda. The church stands out for its bluish coloration given the extensive use of lapis lazuli. The paintings on the north face, and to a lesser extent, on the west face of the church have suffered damage, but those on the south and east faces are magnificently preserved.

A causa de la fecha de los frescos, el asedio de Constantinopla no se muestra en los frescos: los turcos habían establecido control sobre Europa Central y no veían con buenos ojos este tipo de propaganda contraria a su régimen. La iglesia destaca por su coloración azulada dado el extenso uso de lapislázuli. Las pinturas de la cara norte, y en menor cantidad, de la cara oeste de la iglesia han sufrido daños, pero las de la cara sur y este están magníficamente conservadas.
