OrvietoDuomo Rose Window
Orvieto Duomo Rose Window

Photo taken by Richard.  I thought I took this shot, can’t find it, but he got it beautifully.   (Outside facade view.)

Again, it’s the rhythm and repetition.  The borders withing the borders.  The figures, then the heads.  The decorative braid-like edgings.  The blue and gold, again.  The circles, the arc, the circles and arcs again.  Wow.  I wonder who conceived it, who sketched it, over and over again probably! and who actually carved it and inlaid the blue and gold and…well, it’s mind-boggling.  And still so visually compelling.  Loveliness.
