photoblog image Salamanca University - facade

Salamanca University - facade

 

Another detail from the university facade.  It appears to be the Pope laying down the law to the cardinals.

The Greek inscription on yesterday's picture encircling the image of Ferdinand and Isabella, says: "The Kings to the University, and This One to Them".

Beautiful, an an eccentric way...
Tom Wilson: It is a rather odd scene!
The crowd is shocked!
Tom Wilson: I'd love to know what the Pope is saying - perhaps telling them what a dreadful time he had last night!

This must tell a story
Tom Wilson: I guess it must, but quite what it is beats me!

Look how agitated they all appear to be. I wonder what the story was?
Tom Wilson: Your guess is as good as mine on that, Chris!

Great scene. The people don't look that happy though, wonder what the occasion was.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Astrid.

Very thin for a pope smile Very intricate statues.
Tom Wilson: One of the more ascetic holders of that office, perhaps!
I think the speech wa s a bit boring . His cardinals are asleep.
Tom Wilson: Ah! Now that is a new take on the scene!
They don't look very happy. A lot of Woe is me going on by the look of it!
Tom Wilson: "We're all doomed I tell you, doomed!!!" - in Latin of course smile
None of them look very happy.
Tom Wilson: It's a hard life in the Vatican.
The cardinals look a little traumatised by the edicts Tom.
Tom Wilson: They've just had bad news, Chad smile
jolis details! amitiés
Tom Wilson: Merci, Jean Pierre.
