Our Champions for the Week:
(July 4 - 10, 2022)
An aspect to take into account and that I see of great value are the (altarpieces - shelves of the sacred figures) in this case by means of the present plan it is shown that in each space there is a wooden figure carved to a sacred image and estofada, to place an example of the Augustinian Hermit Friar. Likewise, the complete altarpiece was made with wood where later thin sheets of gold were applied, this process is called Gold leaf.
I was also struck by the fact that there are two crosses on the territory of the Church of the Exaltation of the Cross, not one. This is not typical for places of colonies. It turns out that one cross symbolizes the Orthodox and the second the Catholic denomination. This place unites all believers, regardless of their religion. Every year the church in Ivanovo is visited by hundreds of Catholic pilgrims from different countries.
The buildings are an expression of the cultural exchange and fusion that transpire between the Deccan sultanates and therefore the Mughals. They represent a more flamboyant, sensual, playful style in contrast to the more restrained Mughal architecture. This movement created new types of architectural expression that drew inspiration from vernacular styles.
