Moldovita Things to Do: 4 reviews and 15 photos
As mentioned in my Sucevita page these paintings were made to tell the mostly illiterate rural people the stories of the bible and the history of the church. Thea are mostly arraged in stripes - like American Comics - which btw are also a tool to tell the illiterate and semi-literate people various stories. But other than the US Romania is fully literate today.
The question how the colours were prepared and which techniques were applied to keep the paintings in such a splendid state for about 500 years in such a rough climate is not yet fully answered.
