'Angel on an empty tomb.’

The interior of the Chapelle Saint Antoine in Bessans is covered with frescoes and a part of the exterior as well. Even if the religious meaning escapes you, you can enjoy the quality of the work and the details. Like this angel, sitting on the lid of Jesus' empty grave. The chapel and its frescoes date from the beginning of the 16th century. Photo Paul Smit.
