What The Churches Conceal

If you came here looking for some sort of church scandal, these are not the droids you are looking for.

I just wanted to call your attention to an article by that title in Delfi (and in Estonian, sorry about that) on the medieval paintings concealed by years of plaster and such in the old church walls. The work theses folks from the Estonian National Heritage Board and the Estonian Academy of Arts, Heritage and Restoration Department are doing is on a church in Kadrina, but this is the same kind of work I got to see at the church at Pöide on Saaremaa.

Very cool stuff...I need to meet these folks!
