Plant based organic pigments used to create beautiful paintings

30th March 2019

Plant based organic pigments in fish oil form some of the natural decorative paints which have been painted onto cotton canvas, over earth daubed walls, at the Ura Kidane Mehret church of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, located on the Zege peninsula in Lake Tana of Ethiopia. The monastery is highly decorated with beautifully painted, colourful and vibrant paintings depicting Ethiopian saints, including our own St George and the history of the Ethiopian-Orthodox Church.
