Sweetly singing o’er the plain”…well you’re taxing me now How…but here is the same angel, two different years…1993 and 1995.

This is on the wall of the Sienna Baptistry and the stripes are green and white marble.  It’s a small building, most notable for the fact that it houses the baptismal font with bronze reliefs.  (The one we go to see is Donatello’s “the Feast of Herod” which is the first known application of one point perspective.)

“And the mountains in reply…”  Merry Christmas to your house tonight.
