ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The inside of the Greek Orthodox church off O'Malley Road in South Anchorage is a little brighter this week, thanks to the work of an artist who traveled to Alaska all the way from Greece.
Konstantine Theodorou spent the past 15 days painting authentic byzantine iconography in gorgeous detail inside the church.
The art depicts different scenes from the bible, and churchgoers say the paintings help connect them to the spirits and god.
Eventually Theodorou's artwork will grace every square inch of the inside of the church, but that will likely take a year or two to complete.
"While I'm painting, I transfer myself to the miracles of the bible," Theodorou said. "I'm not quite here, if I relive the miracles of the bible."
