About Wooden Church from Desesti

UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Taking into account that all parietal and iconostasis were made ​​in 1780, the church was probably built a few years before decorating them.

The inside painting of the church has been preserved in good conditions, covering all the walls of the three rooms. Therefore the importance of the whole parietal is great, being a representative example of specific eighteenth-century post-Byzantine painting Maramures.

Currently, the movable wooden church Desesti, consists of fourteen icons, all painted in the same technique, tempera on wooden base. An icon - depicting Christ - is made ​​in the seventeenth century and the other dating from the eighteenth century. (source: wikipedia)
