Collections: Wood in the cathedral





More photo collections... this time my attention was arrested by all of the amazing wood carvings you see in cathedrals. The time and energy and detail of these pieces (which I presume largely go unnoticed) is just breathtaking for me. I'm becoming the mad lady taking macro shots of wood while everyone else is pointing their lens at the stars. He he :)

I would love to do a cathedral tour some day. I'm just so amazed by the detail of the handiwork, and you're right: a lot of people probably don't look that closely.

Beauty is in the details. Think of the time, effort and love that went into those carvings...
