Vatican artists to help renovate Isfahan’s Saint Mary Church

Tehran's Mehr News has an article about artists from the Vatican who are coming to Isfahan (Iran) to help restore plasterwork and murals in the Armenian Catholic Saint Mary Church in Isfahan.
Located in the Armenian district of Jolfa, the Saint Mary Church was constructed in 1613 and is known for the beauty of its dado tile-work, completed several years after the original building between 1651 and 1676, which reveals a high degree of naturalism and depicts a landscape of evergreens and peacocks.
This is a sign of hope. This trash from the same paper isn't.
