Rome

Red

Underpainting on panels

Icons

Ascent

Pines of Rome

Ladders of Divine Graces

Ascend / Descend

Umbrella crowns

Clouds upon which angels dance

in Basilica Santa Maria Sopra Minerva built

upon the foundation of a temple dedicated to Isis

Filippino Lippi fresco

Seen as if through a giant key hole

the columns and the images of columns /

blur

and the sky starts swirling
