I love how the ceiling is pristine and looking all brand new and the walls are old and crumbly. What an awesome contrast and I am so glad that you caught it before they fix up the rest of the place.

There is so much beauty in your country, and this beautifully restored ceiling is one tiny example. I'm always eager to see what images you post each day.

A lovely image... the restoration to keep it intact is justified by it's beauty.

Wonderful ceiling against the composition of those lamps.

That's quite the elaborate light fixture, but it matches perfectly the restored ceiling that looks like Wedgwood porcelain...
