Mileseva Monastery : Conservation Works 2002

Fund BLAGO (Treasure) of the Serbian Unity Congress continues its work on the preservation and restoration of the most beautiful frescoes of our medieval art. The financial aid provided last year, allowed for the urgent restoration of the renowned frescos White Angel and the Last Supper. This gallery shows works on preserving the next valuable item: the part of a unique wall fresco known as The Nemanjics Procession which is composed of several pictures. The Procession is located above the main external entrance in the Mileseva Monastery and comprises historical portraits of the rulers of the Nemanjic family, starting from Nemanja through Saint Sava, Stefan the First-Crowned, King Radoslav, and finally to the very endower of the Mileseva Monastery, King Vladislav.

The extraordinarily beautiful frescoes had been left deteriorating until 2002 mainly because of Serbia's limited financial circumstances. That year, Mr. Nenad Vukicevic, Vice-President of the Serbian Unity Congress and President of the Fund BLAGO while making a CD on the Mileseva Monastery learned of the predicament affecting the wall frescoes The Last Supper and White Angel. Since then, the SUC Fund BLAGO became the sponsors of these pieces of the Serbian culture and art. Continuation of the preservation and restoration efforts now underway is of great importance for our cultural heritage.
