Holy Image, Hallowed Ground

In addition to the conservators, curators, and preparators working on this exhibition, a Getty Museum film crew traveled to the Holy Monastery of Saint Catherine in the Sinai Desert. They captured images of this ancient site and its traditions that have attracted pilgrims from around the world for more than a thousand years. Watch Holy Image, Hallowed Ground here.
