Today we are exciting the Chapel and entering the Marble Hall.
Rather than trying to describe why it's called that, I invite you to take a look for yourself below. :)
Clearly the owners and designers of this mansion did too.
If we step into the very center of the Marble hallway...
and look up...
a marvelous wonder meets our eyes!
I nearly laid down on the marble floor to take this photo - but I was pretty sure that the docents watching from the corners of the room wouldn't have liked that.
Additionally, I was afraid that I wouldn't want to get up! Not due to exhaustion, but rather the desire to keep staring up at this ceiling - I LOVE the Universe.
Ah well, let us pull our eyes back down from the ceiling to the wall and take in one of two HUGE tapestries in the Marble Hall. (The other one you can see in the first photo.)
Here we have "The Lord of the Hunt."
Now that we've taken a gander at the Marble Hall, we'll spend the next three weeks touring the other three rooms on this floor (that guests are allowed in, that is). Stay tuned!
Be well! Be kind!
Blessings on your journey,
