Cave church "Holy Mother" - village of Pestani
|This cave church can
be found about twenty kilometers from Ohrid, on the right
side of the road that leads to Saint Naum, in the rocks
of the eastern shore of Lake Ohrid.
In one of the cave churches on the shore of Lake Ohrid the biggest fresco painting ensemble ever preserved can be found.
Nowadays, due to the atmospheric effects inside the cave church, it is very difficult to execute a more systematic analysis. In addition, no written documents exist. Still, by analyzing the artistic style and procedure, one can conclude that this painting possesses most of the distinctive features of the Ohrid School of Fine Art from the 1360-ies and it is very similar with the fine art in Marko's monastery.
