Photographer's Note

THE PANTHEON
Michelangelo (1475-1564) looked at everything with an artist's critical eye, and he was not easily impressed. But when Michelangelo first saw the Pantheon in the early 1500s, he proclaimed it of "angelic and not human design." Surprisingly, at that point, this classic Roman temple, converted into a Christian church, was already more than 1350 years old.

What's even more surprising is that the Pantheon, in the splendor Michelangelo admired, still stands today-another 500 years after he saw it.


I thought I would put forward a different perspective of the Pantheon as you would normaly see.
It is hard to believe that they could make this sort of structure of magnificent detail so long ago.
The work is flawless.

Thanks for looking.
