Terracotta (16th Century)

Both Sculptures are from the 16th century. They look surreal real. It’s amazing.

You can both see them in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Another ceiling…

roof

A ceiling  /ˈsiːlɪŋ/ is an overhead interior surface that covers the upper limits of a room. It is not generally considered a structural element, but a finished surface concealing the underside of the roof structure or the floor of a storey above. Ceilings can be decorated to taste, and there are many fine examples of frescoes and artwork on ceilings especially in religious buildings.

For a greater good?

Sometimes, I just wonder why the hell people have put so much effort and time in building these great cathedrals… Other times I just wonder why they build so big infrastructures for the Olympic games… Whatever. Strange thoughts…
