Switzerland. Geneva. The Russian Church (full name: Cathédrale de l'Exaltation de la Sainte Croix) is designed in a Byzantine Moscovite style and is a lovely 19th-century church. The building undergoes a complete revival restoration. A restorer from the french "Workshop Arcoa" already worked on the removal of adherent surface deposits by physical chemical means on a painting from Matthew the Apostle and an angel in the church's cupola. Matthew the Apostle, also known as Saint Matthew, was, according to the Christian Bible, one of the twelve apostles of Jesus and, according to Christian tradition, one of the four Evangelists. Art conservation can involve the cleaning and stabilization of art work. The conservation-restoration of cultural heritage focuses on protection and care of tangible cultural heritage, including artworks, The Russian church serves today not only the Russian community but also Bulgarians, Serbs, Coptic Christians and other Orthodox worshippers who do not have their own church in Geneva. In architecture, a cupola is a small, most often dome-like, structure on top of a building.1.11.2016 © 2016 Didier Ruef
