EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the mesmerizing beauty of the early 12th-century frescoes in Bet Maryam, St. Mary's Church, located in Lalibela, Ethiopia. The image captures a moment frozen in time, as we witness a child sitting outside this historical structure, immersed in awe and wonderment. The affectionate bond between mother and child is beautifully depicted through the illustration of Madonna holding baby Jesus. The vibrant colors and intricate details of this African artwork bring to life the rich Christian heritage that thrives within these walls. As we gaze upon this close-up view, we are drawn into the spiritualism and holiness that emanates from every brushstroke. The halo surrounding Christ symbolizes his divinity while emphasizing his significance within Ethiopian Christianity. This mural not only represents a religious connection but also reflects the love shared by generations past and present. It stands as a testament to their unwavering faith and devotion to God. Lalibela itself holds immense cultural importance as an ancient travel destination for those seeking spiritual enlightenment. This house of worship serves as a sanctuary where believers can find solace amidst its multi-colored walls adorned with ethereal paintings. Through Gavin Hellier's lens, we are transported to Eastern Africa's enchanting land where history intertwines with religion seamlessly. This print encapsulates the essence of Ethiopia's religious fervor while inviting us to explore its remarkable artistic treasures firsthand.
