Noto Cathedral

It has been decided by the powers that be, that the restored Duomo of Noto will have a Christ Pantocrator painted by Bruono D’Arcevia – his website is here:
D’Arcevia has a great reputation for his religious themes – Rubenesque women and Poussinesque landscapes – this pantocrator will have a flame, St John the Baptist, a Madonna and an open tomb, and a lamb (with its throat cut). And Saints Agostino and Ambrogio as well as God – so technically not a Cristo Pantocratore at all, but a large frescoe. Hopefully the maestro’s idea of composition doesnt make it too ‘busy’.
Its going to take 6 hours a day through August.
