June 2011: Salisbury 8: The pulpit and Sanctuary

Photobucket

The lovely stone carved pulpit with a hanging canopy.

A big flower arrangement.

An angel

The roof right on top of the crossing!

And the roof down the nave.

It is filled with these round what I can only describe as paintings. They could be mosaics as well, but no way to tell I am afraid.

Looking up at the sanctuary and altar.

The north transept.

The serried arches.

The south transept.

There is some restoration going on.

And the four statues just outside the presbytery.

In a way, for an art-lover like myself, decorating our home is quite easy. I just please myself mostly, with my poor husband going along with most of my choices. I am always collecting beautiful things, like handicraft decorative pieces, little sculptures and hangings.
And I simply hang lovely paintings in all our rooms. Not all are originals of course, as who can afford many of those.
I order many prints on canvas from wahooart.com who have a vast collection of images from Western art, that you can choose to make economically-priced prints like this Interior in Aubergines, by Henri Matisse, http://en.wahooart.com/A55A04/w.nsf/Opra/BRUE-5ZKCMX, from there.
I can choose the frames as well and my orders are delivered quickly to my home.
