Ceiling of National Pantheon in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

Gracing the arched ceiling of the National Pantheon are two magnificent paintings by Rafael Pellicer. They are entitled Ascension into Heaven (Ascensión a los Cielos) and The Final Judgement (El Juicio Final). Hanging from the dome is a bronze chandelier. This was a gift to the Dominican Republic by Francisco Franco, the former dictator of Spain from 1938 until 1973.
