2TC: Carve/Curve

Carve: Intricate lace detail on a marble statue :

This week's 2 Things Challenge is Carve/Curve. The weekend featured a trip down to Marseille, France, on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea and home to the culinary delight known as bouillabaisse. These photos were taken inside the Basilica of Our Lady of the Guard (Notre-Dame de la Garde). The first is a detail shot of a marble carving of lace on the liturgical robes of a priest. The second shot is inside the basilica's main sanctuary and highlight the many curves in this Neo-Byzantine church.

Next week's 2 Things Challenge is Flimsy/Solid.

Very nice. The carved curves of the lace just put my little cedar dog head to shame. Unbelievable patience and talent.

Wow, I would never have guessed that was carved marble! And I love the light and colors inside the church.

Both shots fit both categories. Nice job!
