Siena Cathedral has a fabulous floor adorned with scenes of Bible and other things. This floor is shown only in September and it is made with different stones and carvings covered with asphalt to create the lines. Here we can see Crates philosopher throwing the material goods away.
A catedral de Siena (Sena) tem um piso formidável adornado com cenas da Bíblia e outras coisas. Este piso é feito com pedras de cores diferentes e linhas escavadas na pedra, preenchidas com betume para criar as formas. Este piso fica à mostra apenas no mês de setembro. Vemos aqui o filósofo Crates jogando fora os bens materiais.

Hi Jorge. I remember this intriguing floor and how difficult it is to take a well composed photo when one image intrudes into another and one has a difficult angle from which to shoot. You did well here capturing the movement and the colours, especially of the treasure.Regards. Klaudio.

Maybe formerly were the jewels out of a suitcase, this is a very nice painting.
Excellent composition with pleasant colours and perfect sharpness.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

This is a fabulous work of art and you have captured it very skillfully. Composition is good, though in this case the upper motif distracts from the message. In fact, as I write this note, I scrolled down so that the motif is off the top of my browser window and I like it better that way. In this case, less is more, imho.
Excellent light and color management, nice sharpness.

Only when opened this, realized this was a floor painted art, Jorge.
Fabulous art elements, well made p[ainting that looks as a wall detail, your POV was most effective.
