As demanded, a closer look to the ceiling of St. Jakob, Bamberg, depicting various episodes from the saint's life.

this is so striking...is it the colours used, or the modern almost cartoon like representation? Excellent MS!

@Ted: It's a modest Baroque illusionist painting, the perspective and proportions look correct when seen from the hall. Its colours and simplicity are indeed unusual, making it look more modern than it really is.

@MARIANA: THANK YOU! ;-)
Beautiful close-up that you captured from below. Looking straight up through a viewfinder almost always makes me a bit unsteady.

@Steven: I'm only looking up for getting the needed values, then I put the camera on the floor, that's the trick. :-)

@dj.tigersprout: Something for your living room...? ;-)
Can't pinpoint the feeling ....maybe a 60's sci-fi aura?

@Twelvebit: A bit of this, yes. Unfortunately I couldn't figure out the artist's name yet.
Further confirms my liking for this church : refreshingly different.

@Ronnie 2¢: It's also a church you won't find in every tourist guide. Many guides (or guided tours) avoid it. It doesn't deserve that.
I like the way the Crucifix is mounted, but I'm at a loss with the painting.......

@Japanalia: Very unusual art, for sure. But an interesting one.
