13/50.- Desesti, icon of Madonna and child


The iconostasis was painted between 1778 and 1780 by Alexandru Ponehalski while the paintings inside the church were made in 1780 by painter Radu Munteranu and the craftsman Gheorghe Mesteru. The mural paintings by Radu Munteanu represent a period when the post-Byzantine painting assumed a more rustic approach. Less comprehensive in expression the iconography includes scenes from both the Old and the New Testament presented in parallel to highlight a moralizing perspective.
