The mural in St. Ilinsky church in Chernobyl town is reproduced here at the Chernobyl Museum in Kyiv. The painted angel’s gaze warns humanity “about the possibility of life disappearing from the face of the earth,” says the museum director, referring to prophecies that suggest the nuclear disaster was a sign of the coming apocalypse. Meanwhile, the Krynychanka (Water Spring) women’s ensemble keeps local folk music alive. <br />
Audio: Krynychanka choir sings a Ukrainian folk song (to turn audio on/off, touch button at top right).<br />
