Invitation to the exhibition

Wooden ceiling from the Church of St. Peter at St. Primož near Kamnik

We present the Church of St Peter above Primož, its ceiling (dated between 1470 and 1480) distinguished by its subtle stencil drawing, the variety of its motifs, which taps into a treasure trove of fairy tales, and its technical consistency. After careful consideration, it was decided that it would be pointless to conserve the painting alone, given the extent of the damage, so a colour reconstruction of the original painting was carried out, preserving all the surviving parts of the original painting.
