The Ceiling and Triptych

Dimitri Pascari

These were both created by a Romanian artist Dimitri Pascari. The intricate ceiling design was painted freehand, without templates or rulers! The artist used tempera paint, a medium he has used in many churches in Rome. The Triptych depicts the last supper and is painted in the Byzantine style.

The Mosaics

Maciej and Piotr Kauczyński

The mosaics were created by the Polish artists Maciej and Piotr Kauczyński, both of whom are undergraduates of The Academy of Arts in Kracow. In honour of his work all over the world, Maciej was decorated with the St Sylvester Order by Pope John Paul II.
The Mosaic on the back wall depicts the story of the dream of Jacob: he dreamed that there was a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven; and behold, the angels of God were ascending and descending on it!”
On the left of the Altar, John the Baptist is depicted baptizing his cousin, Jesus, in the River Jordan. The Holy Spirit descends as a dove from Heaven. On the right is the Last Supper. Judas is the only apostle without a halo and is holding a bag of money.
