Looks like an Orthodox TARDIS.
Well, then, there might be a whole monastery hidden away inside that chapel.

The monastery is actually norwegian, but I think those who have painted the church are serbians. The abbott is our archimandrite father Johannes. The picture is from the concecration.

Here you can watch some pictures of the construction :)

I can't see the icon very clearly but I think it may be saint Triphon of Petsjenga to whom the monastery is dedicated to.

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

The Preacher by Charles White, 1952. Ink on Cardboard.

I saw this a few years ago in an art textbook. It's one of those images that really sticks with me in a very intense way.
