Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore (Weekend Reflections # 394)

Rome, Italy

This a reflection inside of  Santa Maria Maggiore Basilica. Note the famous "all seeing eye of God" window in the center and the paintings on the ceiling. This is reflected in a marble column exactly like the one in the reflection. Can you see the column? It's on the right side.

Have a Happy and Blessed Easter!

I am surprised that the surface of such an old column would be so perfectly clean and reflective. The absence of distortion due to the curvature of the surface is also unexpected. Still cannot find you or your camera!
