Abstract: The ceiling shows the Lynx constellation which is in the northern hemisphere. It was introduced in the 17th century by Johannes Hevelius. Its name originates from the fact that someone would need the eyes of a lynx to see it.
Description: Sunburst design on the apse ceiling was later replaced by a gold moon.
