Michael's Cathedral a Kiev
St. Michael's Cathedral was destroyed by the times of USSR in 1935 and anew built in 90th after Ukraine got it's independence. Inside cathedral there are unique mosaics and wall paintings which were taken out before cathedral devastation and kept safe in the museums of Moscow and St. Petersburg. The St. Michael Cathedral gained its renown due to mosaics and wall paintings. Cathedral's mosaics is called "flaring painting" - they are hazing enveloping all cathedral's space with its dying down and again flaring with new volume radiance. They belong to the creation of master Alimpiy, whose name was surrounded by legends already during his life.
