During the day and while the lights are on, nothing seems to be of any difference in the Georgikirche in Kindberg. But as soon as darkness spreads out, the colossal glowing eyes of a cat of prey appear right behind the altar and stare at you in a calm but indeed frightening sublimeness. This emerging entity of yet unknown dimensions seem to ask for the Vera Eikon while transcending the space of the apsis. Hereby the whole church is transformed into a mystical cavity of a totally different power, like a negative of the dies irae sung by the priests during the day.
