Church Dome

On February 7, 1887 the Church of St. Nicholas in Amsterdam was consecrated. Patron saint of the city, he went for over 200 years without a proper church during the Catholic repression. The building that finally came to represent him is a graceful example of sacred space. The acoustics in the church are exceptional and we were lucky enough on one occasion to be there for a choral rehearsal. When you closed your eyes in that cold dark church you were transported back centuries in time.

Church dome is available as a framed, matted print, t-shirt, candle and greeting card.
