Thanks for the motivating comment! I have a few other shots, but none capture it so well as this one. When you know the culture and history a bit, this and this photo also tell stories.

In a way it is - it is Georgian Orthodox, which is a autocephalous part of the Eastern orthodox church. It is unfortunate that I had to shoot this one with a rather weak camera and then crop it, the IQ is not good as a result, the motif is though.
