Bronze Reliefs from Above

I was walking around where I work and decided to stop at the top of a staircase. I look over at one of the massive chandeliers that dot the ceiling and noticed what looked like intricate designs. I turned on my camera, zoomed in, and took a few photos. The first photo shows a shot of the entire chandelier. Beautiful and grand, it complements the marble walls and high ceilings.

The second picture (below) offers a close-up view of the ornate reliefs on the bottom section of the chandelier. It’s similar to what you would find on ancient Roman bronze works of art. To think I could find something just as beautiful without having to fly half-way around the world!

If you were able to find a similar piece of art, I’d suggest taking a close-up shot and framing the picture. It would be a great centerpiece for a dining room or other area that gets a lot of traffic. Not only will the photo look elegant, but the metallic hues will add a warmth and glow to your space in a way that’s timeless.
