The interior of the Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Cape Town, Agios Georgios, was painted with extraordinarily beautiful murals and icons in the 1990s by a Romanian artist and his assistants.  The Friends of the South African National Gallery have been invited by Father Nicholas to view this magnificent church and to learn more about the story of the paintings.  Andrew Lamprecht will contextualise the artwork in the Greek Orthodox Cathedral with a discussion about the role of icons and the history and meaning of religious imagery in Orthodox religion and culture.
