The Divine Liturgy at Al Bustan

The chapel at Al Bustan is dedicated to the Nativity of the Virgin Mary, the All-holy Theotokos. It is unusual in having a low iconostasion. This gives a clear view of the walls and ceiling, which were painted in a secco technique by Father Pachomios, a monk of Sinai who died in 1958.

One cannot help feeling that perhaps Father Pachomios got a little carried away.
