Those wonderful scissor arches never fail to enthrall, Tom
Tom Wilson: Amazing, aren't they?
The trick was to disguise support as decoration Tom.
Tom Wilson: Exactly! And wasn't it done well!?
The background feature reminds me of bones.
Tom Wilson: It does look rather skeletal, doesn't it? smile

This is such a wonderful picture. I loved the inside as well as the outside of this church. (Monday I will post from the Wells Cathedral again)
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Astrid - I look forward to seeing yours!
The Crucifixion in empty space... powerful!
