Ceiling  paintings

Nuestra Señora del Pilar Parish Church

The church’s ceiling painting was done in 1924 by Raymundo Francia, who employed a method called quadratura, a type of ceiling painting popular during the Baroque period. He painted fictitious architectural details like ceiling ribs meeting curved walls on flat surface, giving 3D illusions.

The grandest feature is the seven-panel painting of the creation of the world by God.
