A Sky for Santa Isabel

The team spent three months in Lisbon, to complete the unfinished vault painting of a sky. The project was initiated by the Swiss artist Michael Biberstein in 2009 and halted by his sudden death in 2013.

From 2014 they have been working with Factum Arte who replicated Biberstein's working method to realize this truly inspiring project.
