But as a matter of work of art, that interior is a poor kitschy outcome.

I'd rather see some minimalistic ceilings, any examples?

No information about this ceiling except its flickr tags revealing it's a Jain temple in Bikaner, Rajasthan but it looks very fascinating. Possible it's the Laxmi Nath Temple.

The synagogue in Chodorov, in western Ukraine, was built in 1652 completely of wood and has remarkable, multicolored painting on its walls and ceiling. The artist drew his inspiration from Jewish heritage, Hebraic motives, the Bible and Talmud and from hand-written, illuminated manuscripts from the Middle Ages. Reconstruction of a section of the ceiling at Tel Aviv Museum of the Diaspora.

The ceiling of Chodorov it's just... wow, didn't know there was an old synagogue like this. And that church in Ethiopia too, fantastic both.

I've seen some nice modern minimalistic ceilings in the Parisian Louvre, but i cannot find any pictures on the internet. Too bad i didn't take a picture myself

Church Santa Maria Tonantzintla in Cholula, Puebla. Some 130 km to the east of Mexico City. A perfect representation of exhuberant indian baroque.

Btw some of those Iranian pictures took my breathe away :O
Oh and the list is really lame.
