Close up of one of several candelabrum that hang from the ceiling at Agios Anargrios.
This religious art work is quite magnificent, constructed with padded fabrics, finished with embroidery and in parts painted. I believe it was created by woman from the Island. Unfortunately my photograph is a little out of focus and does not do it justice.
An beautiful example of religious art work at the front of the church, Agios Anargrios.
Each of the church's candelabrum has an unusual ceiling fitting. In this picture, parallel lines of cracks can be seen running along the ceiling.
The interior of Agios Anargrios is beautifully decorated and has been well maintained. However there is an urgent need of funds for repairs to the ceiling which was damaged during a recent earthquake. Cracks run the full length of the ceiling.
This tomb can be found at the left side of the church's entrance, and reads "here lies Eleni K. Panaretou, born January 1813 died 2 January 1887"
The tomb at the right hand side of the entrance to Agios Anargrios reads "Panayotis S. Panaretos, priest 1840 - 1929."
