Uniquely, the floorplan here follows the pattern of the Mesopotamian style. Except for a few murals painted in red and in the art of the 12th century, the rest of the frescos were painted direcly on the wall, without a base of plaster. The nave is dominated by the scene of the Crucifixion, the artistic realization of which is again something unique in Cappadocia. Christ is an anatomical abstraction. The constituents of his body are depicted in strange, “futuristic” manner. His breasts are concentric circles and his abdomen a cross, placed in an “egg.” The background reflects the Göreme landscape with strangely distorted trees.
