Sparkles of colour
We were lucky enough to go to Barcelona late last year and feasted our eyes on Gaudi buildings around the city. I thought it would be all kitsch mosaic and kookiness, but was completely unprepared for how gobsmackingly beautiful, intelligent, and gentle his designs were. Such amazing organic shapes! And the Cathedral - I was literally speechless and had tears as I stood inside and looked up. Such grand beauty, such an abundance of detail - bold, majestic and humble too. beautiful from a distance and beautiful up close. Wowser. Here are some close ups of mosaic to inspire if you can't be there today to see them in the flesh!
