"Zallinger Chapel - Alpe di
Suisi, Italy" by Paul McGehee. The famous Zallinger Chapel is located
on the largest alpine meadow in Europe: The Seiser Alm/Alpe di Siusi,
in the Alto Adige region of the Dolomite Mountains, in northern Italy.
It is South Tyrol’s highest-located, consecrated church. Zallinger
Chapel, dedicated to the Mother of God, dates back to 1857 and was then
the first in the region. Every year, on the 15th of August (Assumption
of Mary) locals celebrate the patronal feast day, a mountain festivity
with a mass in the Zallinger Chapel. The majestic mountains in the
background are part of the grouping known as the "Rosszähne"...the name
translates to 'the horse's teeth'! This area of the Dolomites is very
popular among climbers and skiers from all over the world. "Zallinger
Chapel - Alpe di Suisi, Italy" is an archival-quality print in limited
edition from the original ink and watercolor painting...hand-signed and
numbered by the artist.
