The exhibition varnishing already became a tradition takes place every year on April 23, when the church celebrates its patron Saint George.
The event is an opportunity to admire the essence of the Christian spirit mirrored in glass icons whose thematic reconstruct key moments in the Passion Week

Spiritual Communion

The popular exhibition brings together artefacts created according traditional techniques, recording the art of the famous icon makers of the family of priest Smadu of Victoria.

The children are very attached to the icons they create and invite at Parau all those whishing to initiate themselves in the icons on glass's art.
