Sant'Ignazio

Street artist Wim is painting this fine reproduction of Andrea Pozzo's trompe d'oeil ceiling in the church of Sant'Ignazio in Rome. It depicts the entrance of St Ignatius Loyola, whose feast day is today, into heaven. The vault and dome of the ceiling are an illusion, which Wim has tried to recapture. Go and admire his work outside the Minster at weekends, weather permitting.
