Sanctus

Architecture, Cathedral
The paintings on the ceilings of Our Lady of the Assumption Co-Cathedral in Gravelbourg, SK depict eternal salvation.  This particular scene is located above and behind the altar.

These magnificent works of art were painted by Monsignor Charles Maillard, a French born priest who devoted 10 years of his time to paint the walls and ceilings of the cathedral (1921-1931).  The murals, were painted on the back of linoleum, as canvas was too expensive at that time.

Entranced by rural and urban decay. I am drawn to these forlorn sites because they emote conflicting sentiments of beauty and disintegration.
