This striking wall painting from the Church of the Assumption of Our Lady in Mosta, Malta, survived unscathed after the ‘Mosta Bomb Miracle’ in 1942. A 200kg bomb dropped during a Luftwaffe air raid struck the rotunda, landing amongst the 300-strong congregation, but did not detonate.
By Giuseppe Cali (1846-1930), the Rotunda also known as Mosta Dome, Malta. Photograph courtesy of Victor B Caruana.
The greeting reads: ‘Wishing you the Peace and Blessings of Christmas’
