Painting the impossible
Many inspired painters in the Eastern Chuches
Fasted and prayed for 40 days
the transfiguration of Christ
For painting the Light
Is a near to
You have to wait
For divine inspiration
To paint The Revelation
Those paintings are known
The mirrors of Light
They are painted
According to simple rules
And defined colors
The perspective is reversed
You have to enter it

The Transfiguration – Matthew 17:1-8
After six days Jesus took with him Peter, James and John the brother of James, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light. Just then there appeared before them Moses and Elijah, talking with Jesus.
Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you wish, I will put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.”
While he was still speaking, a bright cloud covered them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him!”
When the disciples heard this, they fell facedown to the ground, terrified. But Jesus came and touched them. “Get up,” he said. “Don’t be afraid.” When they looked up, they saw no one except Jesus.
