Anatolian Church Frescoes

Caesarea (modern Kayseri in central Anatolia-Turkey) was the capital of ancient Cappadocia. The Christian population of Caesarea was forced to migrate to the west when the Turks began to invade the eastern part of Anatolia in the beginning of the 7th century AD. The natural structure of Cappadocia had offered great conveniences for the new comers thus they carved homes and churches in the rocks.
St. Basil of Caesarea suggested the idea of training missioners who would diffuse the Christian doctrines and a kind of religious school was founded in the Goreme Valley. Many churches were built by carving the soft blocks of rocks formed of volcanic lava. Magnificent frescoes depicting mainly Jesus Christ and some well-known scenes from the Holy Bible adorn the walls of those churches.

Now you have the chance to adorn your own walls with the exact replicas (reduced size) of the ancient masterpieces from Cappodocia without destroying the originals.

No fresco reproduction is alike, shapes vary. Approximate size: 16cm x 20cm (7" x 8")
