This religious tapestry features the Church of the Resurrection of Christ, which is a one of the most spectacular, and certainly the most colorful Orthodox Cathedrals. This church is located in the heart of St. Petersburg. It was designed by architect Alfred Parland in 1883.
The Church of the Resurrection of Christ is also known as the Saviour-on-the-Spilt-Blood because it was built to commemorate Emperor Alexander II, who was assassinated in 1881 in the same place, where the church now stands. Emperor Alexander II was mortally wounded by a bomb thrown by Ignaty Grinevitsky, a member of the People's Will organization.
There are 20 granite plaques on the church facades which record, in gold letters, the main events during the reign of Alexander II. The highlights of the lavish decor are the elegant cupolas executed in the technique of fine enamel.
This tapestry will make your home look more unique.
Suitable for any home design. Great religious gift. Great addition to any religious tapestry collection.
