Switzerland. Geneva. Two carpenters from the roofing company « Cerutti Toitures SA » control, repair and manufacture new wooden frames for the central onion dome of the Russian Orthodox Church (full name: Cathédrale de l'Exaltation de la Sainte Croix). The giant bulb underwent a complete revival restoration. The church is a lovely 19th-century Russian Orthodox church topped with golden onion domes. An onion dome is a dome whose shape resembles an onion. Such domes are often larger in diameter than the drum upon which they sit, and their height usually exceeds their width. These bulbous structures taper smoothly to a point. 27.05.2016 © 2016 Didier Ruef
