Lulu: “That’s rather fancy!”
Exquisitely fancy, Lulu!
That is very aww inspiring. And I love how all those tiles were placed to make such a beautiful art. I think in the days when it was made,peeps wanted things to be so gorgeous in order to bring glory to God.
I think the rooster has to do with Peter, after he denied Jesus three times, the rooster crowed as Jesus had previously predicted. (See Matthew’s Gospel.)
That’s right! I’d forgotten about the rooster crowing! I’m always in awe whenever I see these incredible mosaics in Europe, all done at a time when things were a bit harder to do than now days.
Isn’t that incredibly beautiful…….WOW.
Thanks. It really was a sight to behold.
…me too😸Beautiful! Pawkisses for a Happy Day🐾😽💞
It was a great place to visit and not all that far from you. 😉
It looks like a psycedilec planetarium.
Your keen eye is right!
So, what’s up with the rooster?
Good question. I have no idea.
Breathtaking!!! Just imagine the work that was put into creating all that detail and beauty.
Mosaics are quite amazing.
Cute Rooster 😆😍💕
Almost Islamic looking. My neck hurts just thinking of how one would have had to stand to set that tile work.
Neck, shoulders…not my idea of a fun job but I’m a bit of a wuss.
I know…you complain about the weather…🤣
I may ‘fuss’ on occasion but when it comes to wind, I’m downright livid and vocal! And for good reason. No one like to re-rake, over and over, and over. Think about those magnolia tree leaves repeating Groundhog Day…multiple times.
Thanks. It was quite exceptional.
I wish I was anywhere that’s warm and dry. Here for the last week, and for the days ahead, it’s cold, wet, windy and miserable. I don’t know what we have done to upset her, but Mother Nature is not a happy lady at the moment.,
Feel free to forward the wet. I can’t remember when we last received any moisture.
Thanks, I loved spending time in Aachen. Such a pretty town.
That is so beautiful…thank you!
Our pleasure. And thanks for the kind word.
Most beautiful. Love all the colors.
Have a fabulous day and rest of the week. Scritches to the pups and a smooch to Norman. ♥
The blue just blew my socks off. Happy mid-week from me and the Ranch Hands.
I love it, looks like a Fabergé egg!
Mosaic tiles are not only beautiful but so creative in the hands of true craftsmen (not mine of course).
Oh yes, very impressive!
how beautiful all the details and the shimmering gold. Back when people took a lot of effort in building structures for use plus beauty even it if took a long time, even if if took more money. Our buildings now are way too often boring
Those old world craftsmen were truly amazing! Regrettably most of today’s architectural revolves around cost considerations.
wonderful… the best blue ever…
Thanks. I can never resist anything blue or sparkley.
That is gorgeous!
Why thank you! I’m a sucker for beautiful mosaic tiles. And anything blue! 😊
Yes, this is a double bonus fabulous shot!
You’re too kind. Thank you!
Hey, from one photog to another! xo
Looks like a paisley shirt I had in High School in the 70’s. 😅
Those tiles were likely installed well before the 18th century so yeah, it’s ‘somewhat’ dated. P.S. Never picked you as a paisley guy, Mike. 😇
What is this beautiful building, a church?
It is…a church in Aachen, Germany. I absolutely loved the blue tiles. The whole church sparkled!
I would like to be there, too.
It’s a wonderful and quite old city.
