image by St. Sophia
Have you ever been inside the St. Sophia Greek Orthodox Cathedral (LA’s largest Greek Orthodox church and LA Historic Cultural Monument #120)? Its amazing. Back in 2001, we documented and conserved of all twenty-one painted icons that fit into the altar screen. We also restored the painted surfaces and gilding on the altar screen, throne and pulpit.
Check out Doug Santo’s pictures of the cathedral on flickr, they’re beautiful.
