The Sistine Chapel in the UK Automatic translate
WORTING. The ceiling of a small church in the seaside village of Worthing in West Sussex is an exact copy of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, however, in a 2/3 scale.
The masterpiece was created by Gary Beavans, deacon of the Church of the English Martyrs in Worthing. Having been to the Vatican at Beatification 85 English martyrs, Bivans was struck to the core by Michelangelo’s masterpiece. Despite the fact that the deacon was not a professional artist and never took drawing lessons, in 1987 he received a blessing for the implementation of his ideas from the parish priest End Nouten and Bishop Corman Murphy O’Connor.
The project, launched the same year, was designed for two months, but due to full employment during the day, Bivans had to fulfill his dream at night and it took much longer. The deacon fastened the wood panels to the ceiling and for 66 months by candlelight wrote out 500 figures from Michelangelo’s masterpiece on the ceiling.
Until recently, until the work of Gary Bivans was included in the list of national attractions of Great Britain, many residents of Worth did not even suspect that they lived next to such an amazing work of art. But in the last year, everything has changed, more than 14 regional and state television companies filmed stories about the Church of the English Martyrs, the flow of tourists into which is now not waning.
Despite the fact that the copy is 30 feet closer to the ground, and its area is only 3,500, not 5,000 square meters. ft., the ceiling of the Church of the English Martyrs faithfully reproduces the famous Sistine Chapel, especially in terms of color.
