Today we are going to take a tour of the Study on the first floor, off of the grand Marble Hall that we saw last week. I will apologize in advance, that I don't have a photo of the whole room, because there were a lot of people in this room while I was in there and I didn't want to take photos of folks without their permission.
However there are some great detail shots of part of this room that I hope you will enjoy.
And with that, let us begin with the first detail of the room, which is an intricate marble, mosaic, table top.
Are you a descendant of the Stuart House? Do you recognize any of the crests below?
They all represent Greek gods and goddesses. Unfortunately, I didn't take Greek in seminary, so I don't know who is named in the windows. If you are up on your Greek and can read the names, I invite you to share the names in the comments below!
Can you find the squirrel in the photo below?
Can you find the rabbit in the photo below?
Can you find the emu in the photo below?
Those who know me know that I am not the biggest fan of spiders. Or - rather - I AM a fan of what they can do, I just don't want them on me.
So, I felt happy that I was able to feel only appreciation for the artist's rendering of a spider - in its web - CARVED OUT OF MARBLE. I humbly bow to the craftsperson who carved this whole column top, but especially for the detail of the fragile web.
Till then, be well. Be safe. Be kind.
Blessings on your Journey,
