The small village of Ferapontovo, located 120 km north-west of Vologda, is known throughout the world. Here is a UNESCO World Heritage Site - the Cathedral of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, painted by Dionysius

A follower of the school of St. Andrei Rublev, he was the last genius of the Golden Age of Russian icon painting five hundred years ago.

The frescoes of the Ferapontovo Monastery have come down to us and stunningly kept the author's intent to get the church filled with an uncreated light.

The project “The Light of Dionysius Frescoes to the World” is unique. Its author, photo artist Yuri Holdin, devoted the last 12 years of his life to making this uncreated light come to people. With his own money and alone, he created the rarest material that uncovered a monument of universal importance.
