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. Two restorers from the french "Workshop Arcoa" is working on the removal of adherent surface deposits by physical chemical means (by cotton swab) on a Jesus Christ painting in the church's cupola. 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
