Historic paintings

I have visitied the church of St Anthony of Padua last friday night. It was open church evening. Inside there were some very beautifull paintings of the 'stages'? It appeared they came from a demolished church (the amount of demolished churches is imense and is still going on) The paintings lately have been restored for 30.000 euro. They are created by a local painter from Utrecht.

The full painting.

Beautiful paintings. The last 2 are part of what we call the Stations of the Cross, there are 14 stations in all. I have never seen any more lovely than these.
