Russia Orthodox Church, 2020


Ink on watercolour paper


The Russian Orthodox Cathedral of the Holy Trinity sits in front of the Argentine National Historical Museum. It was designed in Saint Petersburg by architect Mikhail Preobrazensky in 1898 and was built and adapted in 1901 by the Argentinian based Norweigan architect, Alejandro Christophersen in collaboration with engineer Pedro Coni.

It boasts a remarkable 17th-century Russian style with 5 blue onion domes and golden stars crowned by orthodox crosses pointing to the east and attached with chains. I hope I have done it justice with my pen and ink drawing on watercolour paper.
