From another point of view..


This is the work of Mantegna....an Italian painter(1431-1506)
In one famous work, called the Camera degli Sposi (wedding chamber), he painted the walls and ceiling of a small interior room, transforming it into an open-air pavilion. On the ceiling a painted dome opens onto a painted sky, with painted men and women looking down from above....


"Seeing things through a different set of eyes changes the whole picture...

On the playlist...Giovanni Gabrieli.

Hi Dutchess,
Sorry for not stopping by in such a looong time. Thanks for your recent "visit" to my blog, I chuckled about your comment re the birdhouse and Miss Mousey.
This is such an incredible painting - makes you think about your prospective on life.
Happy week-end.
Barb
