The ceiling in the central-hall in the old Sintra-Palace.
All the tiles are in brown-red and yellow-orange tones, depicting the most common animals found in the vicinity of the area: Does Dears and Gazelles.
The place is vast and I set on the floor to take the picture, could not include the whole of it.

Wonderful design on the dome of one of the wonderful rooms of the palace at Sintra. How have you managed to bring the camera there?, Had to give my camera to deposit.
בוקר טוב. עיצוב נהדר על הכיפה של אחד החדרים הנפלאים של הארמון על סינטרה. איך הצלחת להביא את המצלמה שם?, צריך לתת פיקדון שלי. בברכה.

Thanks for your kind words,Ike
I have the impresion of being trapped inside a vase as the legendary Genius of the Lamp, ready to dispense favours as soon as somebody pulls the cap!!
Nice Portugese ornaments in this mostly-monochrome poster.

Good morning Ike,
You managed the photo of this dome extremely well ! Brave of you to lie on the floor to take the photo !
I like the colours all in the browns and golds, and the details are very well rendered. Elegant geometrical patterns.
Thanks for sharing and have a good week.

An amazing ceiling. Those Mediterraneans really do know their stuff don't they? I love the natural tones, the perspective and of course the details all accentuated by the tight framing. Great job, TFS and I wish you a beautiful day.

You're capturing well this ceiling by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the ceiling of the old Sintra-Palace. It seems to beautiful decoration with geometical pattern, showy volors and painting of fixed interval.

What a pretty dome with intricate decorations. Very nice interior photo, TFS.
PS. I see that the last person that critiqued this before me was kato. I wonder how he is doing. He added something to the effect that his health does not allow him to participate in TE to his intro beginning of last summer and I have not heard from him since.
