The pioneering artworks of Archon Hagiographer’s Exhibition

The works of the exhibition, displayed for the first time, have been crafted as “exerga”. This means that the works have been crafted as reliefs, in a harmonious context where the byzantine hagiography is combined with painting as well as with other forms of art such as the mosaic.
