Saint Anne from Faras

Saint Anna (fresco from Faras)

Saint Anna – Nubian fresco dating from the 8th to the first half of the 9th century, made with tempera on mud plaster in al secco technique. An anonymous work was found at the Faras Cathedral in former Nubia, Sudan today.

Inspired by a painter The Mad Hamster’s blog I decided to give myself a try and painting something completely new. Basically a simple freehand on a slice of onyx stone.
