Fortress Chapel

Orthodox churches are full of iconic art, and this one was no exception.  The chapel itself maybe measures fifteen feet square, generously.  It's a simple square with no pews - Orthodox congregations stand through the whole up to three hour services.  The art is handpainted in most places, and usually very stylized and elaborate.
