Captivating Ceilings from Around the World From the enchanting tales of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight to the breathtaking masterpieces in Trinity College's Long Room, ceilings have long been an overlooked canvas for artistic expression. Journey with us as we explore some of the most remarkable ceilings across different continents. In Rome, Italy, lies a true marvel - the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Painted by Michelangelo himself, this iconic masterpiece depicts biblical scenes that seem to come alive before your eyes. The vibrant colors and intricate details make it a sight that leaves visitors in awe. Venturing north to England, Kings Cross Station boasts a stunning ceiling adorned with ornate designs and delicate arches. As travelers pass through this architectural gem they can greeted by its grandeur and reminded of its historical significance. Meanwhile, at Kings College Chapel in Cambridge, England, one can gaze upon a celestial wonderland painted on its vaulted ceiling. Winged heads of 80 Ethiopian cherubs create an ethereal atmosphere that transports visitors into another realm entirely. Across Europe in Dublin's Trinity College Library stands another magnificent example - The Long Room. Its wooden barrel-vaulted ceiling stretches endlessly above rows upon rows of ancient books. This hallowed space is steeped in knowledge and whispers stories from centuries past. Delving further eastward brings us to Moscow's Komsomolskaya Metro Station where commuters are treated not only to efficient transportation but also to an extraordinary visual experience. Intricate mosaics adorn every inch of its arched ceiling, showcasing Russia's rich history and cultural heritage. Traveling even farther east leads us to Shiraz in Iran where we find ourselves beneath the captivating Tomb of Hafez. This intricately designed Islamic architecture features a mesmerizing dome-shaped ceiling that pays homage to Iran's most celebrated poet while creating an atmosphere conducive for reflection and contemplation. Lastly, we visit Eltham Palace, a unique fusion of medieval and Art Deco styles in London.
