When I visited Florence a few years ago my bed & breakfast was located at the heart of the Duomo, and the Baptistry was right outside my front door.
Tonight I went for a lecture on Lorenzo Ghiberti (and Flippo Brunelleschi) and was reminded of how much I love the city of Florence and it's art. This image is but one panel by Lorenzo Ghiberti which is part of a set of doors from the Baptistry known as The Gates of Paradise.
Maybe it's the Catholic in me, or maybe it's the artist, either way I'm a Believer!!!
