Photographer's Note

The Church of the Holy Cross in Brzeg seen from the outside looks inconspicuous and gray (see my yesterdays photo).
But inside the church the richness of Baroque decorations is simply breathtaking.
The church was built by the Jesuits in the years 1734 - 1739, and in 1739-1745, the Jesuit Jan Kuben painted 115 rich polychromyes with an illusion of 3D.
The paintings depict the glory of the Holy Cross and scenes from the New Testament and figures of saints.
