In the heart of the old town of Parma lies the Battistero di Parma. 200 years in the making, the resulting product is rather fantastic. The external of the Baptistry presents as an octagonal building, internally there are 16 sides. Increasingly slender marble columns arch ever upward to the keystone that locks the engineering marvel into place. 13th C frescoes adorn the walls and ceilings in such details that you end up spinning around and around and around...
I guess it was early in the piece for the artist where the sizing of subjects were not right.. or was it a mini royal?
