In 2016 the Russian Orthodox church of Geneva is celebrating its 150th anniversary, an occasion for which a competition was launched to restore the interior murals of the church. In 2012 "IGMA Expert" has won the assignment to carry out initial tests and investigations of the church's art work.

Much to our surprise we discovered while probing some ornamental paintings the existence of an earlier, orginal decor long hidden beneath three further layers of later decorative embellishments.

This discovery increases the complex restoration of the paintings scheduled to begin in 2014 and lasting some two years.

The project is funded by "La Société de l'église russe", the Canton of Geneva and the Wilsdorf Foundation.

The restoration work is accompanied with Elena Hazanov's documentary filming of the church's history and the restorative work to be carried out.
