Let's look at Syria before all trace of Christianity and Judaism is removed from it's soil .... part II

I sincerely hope that someone somewhere is talking to someone somewhere to ensure that when the barbarians take over Syria, which is gonna be very soon,  the galleries, museums, monastries, tombs and churches of Syria where these priceless treasures are kept, are not plundered, pillaged, burned by the islamists as has happened to many important relics in Egypt and Libya. 

A painting depicting the burial of the martyred saints Cosmas and Damien (foreground), along with their three brothers (one in the background). They were buried in Cyrus (in Syria) and a basilica
was built over their tombs. Their feast day is September 27.

Samuel annoints David, detail of the mural paintings in the synagogue, Dura-Europos, Syria, ca. 245-256. Tempura on plaster, 4' 7" high.
In this time period, there were not many blatantly christian paintings sue to the persecution, yet these murals depicted biblical stories. They are done using the same style as pagan art.
