Pavel Ryzhenko. The Last Judgement. 2007

00 Pavel Ryzhenko. The Last Judgement. 2007

The Last Judgement

Pavel Ryzhenko



A detail from the above work… note the Royal Martyrs to the left, and the man by the angel in the centre is the artist.



Another detail from the above work… a loud-mouthed modernist Catholic on an internet forum accused Orthodox of being stuck in the mud and nothing but “museum pieces”… betcha he never heard of Mr Ryzhenko or seen his paintings (especially this one)… do you want that order of Crow Supreme super-sized, sir? Shall you have some fries to go with it?
