Art is everywhere in Port-au-Prince. It is even for sale on the edge of one of the makeshift camps that have sprung up since the earthquake.
Even the humblest business is gaily decorated. Amid the rubble, there are still dazzling splashes of colour.
Damage to the city's National Cathedral is well documented, but the scene at the Holy Trinity Episcopal Cathedral is equally desperate. This baptism of Christ is one of the few frescoes to survive.
The figures are unmistakably Haitian. Cathedral staff say they are hoping to preserve this section.
But it will be a delicate job - the cathedral has been almost totally demolished. Some of the figures even appear to be shocked.
Other scenes have been gravely damaged, or destroyed altogether. The cathedral is looking to the UN cultural agency, Unesco, for help.
At the neighbouring elementary school, part of the cathedral complex, a damaged mural stands in the main hall. The building will have to be demolished.
The mural is not regarded as one of Haiti's important art works, so may not be saved. But what remains is painfully vivid.
At the Centre D'Art, regarded as the home of Haitian art since the 1940s, the dangerous and painstaking business of recovering treasures, like this wooden sculpture, goes on.
Meanwhile, prolific Haitian painter Frantz Zephirin has already completed 10 works inspired by the quake. Here, the living dead plead for help from the international community.
In another of Zephirin's works, hands reach up from a river of blood, flowing through the devastated streets of Port-au-Prince.
And in his most recent work, a family remains trapped under the rubble. To emphasise their predicament, a spider has already spun a web across the opening.
There are signs of musical creativity too. Well-known singer Lolo Beaubrun (front, left), his wife and friends perform a lament for Haiti under the trees in Lolo's garden. (Words and images: Paul Adams)
