My Trip to Rome- Part 4 of 4

It rather surprised me to discover...

...that in addition to its incredible statuary and antiquities...

 
...the Vatican Museum also boasts a large and wonderful...

...modern art collection!



Wouldn't this gilded motif look amazing, made up in felt? :)
 
The day after my daughter's wedding...

...many of the attendees shared a local winery tour and luncheon...

 
...in this lovely and atmospheric setting.

 
Throughout Rome, everywhere we walked...

...lovely surprises were to be found!

 
This amazing church entrance...

...reminded me a little of this scene in the movie 'Star Wars'.  ,)

 
Much of Rome wears, as its ambient shade, a warm terra cotta color...



...(although upon close examination, we realized that in this church, at least...

...the wall panels were merely painted to look like marble)!

 
Next time: I return to 'the land of felt'!

(Thanks for taking this journey with me!)

I shall be interested to watch the inspiration from this trip showing up in felt for some time to come!
