PICTURES OF THE OCULUS

Morning all,

Frances Robertson (AKA Floss) had the brilliant idea that I share some pictures of the Pantheon with you so you can more clearly imagine the setting of the piece! Thanks Flo!

Here they are below: you can see the Grapefruit Dome the Porticco, the Oculus (the hole at the top) the million midday rays.

The place is essentially a massive sundial and the Romans would have probably had the Sun’s ray picking out different Gods at different points on the wall (that’s why it’s a Pan-theon).

Enjoy the visual wonder: it’s far-away my favorite building in the world I reckonĀ  (though the Miners Arms comes a close second)…..
