I've never seen such cherub faces. So unusual!
And those stations of the cross, wow!

And it's all backed by a fantastic tile mural. Beautiful.

Very fancy!

Is that inside or outside the church? Lovely tile work.

I could have sworn that that was the Virgin Mary. Beautiful!

Really an unusual tones for the Cross Stations representation. I like it.

Wonderful, but you can't do this! You completely devalued my tomorrow's post...

Super photo with great color and light. Can't say I like most religious art, though.

The cherubs look like severed heads! Glad you told me they were cherubs.

@Joy: It's inside the church.

@Ciel: I believe it is Virgin Mary. She was a saint, right? :-)

I agree with Ciel about Mary and Joan Elizabeth about the heads. We all see things differently.
I do love the blue large tile work. They are the Stations of the Cross too. Wow!! MB
