Christmas Presents

The Temple Gallery have just published their Christmas catalogue, have a look and enjoy it, prices start at £580, the Russian art market is rising at the moment.

Images of Christ and his saints are important in our lives buying something beautiful and expensive to put in one's home could be an idea. The alternative could be printing off a copy of one of these images and mounting them
