Among the religious, there is always the expression of the Great Infinite in many of their work. When we visited Melk Abbey in Melk, Austria this summer, we saw clear demonstrations in many of their structures.
A beautifully preserved ceremonial hall at the Abbey showcased the artist’s view of the splendor of the heavenly skies with all that is celestial or perhaps, even astrological.
This pristine corridor was seen just off the entrance to the beginning of our walking tour through the Abbey last Summer.
This spiral staircase we came down from was just off the chapel. When we looked up, it seemed that the staircase kept winding up and up and up! Here’s another view of it:
The last photo is a trick done with mirrors. At the bottom of the stairwell, there was this big circular mirror that shows the spirals of the staircase beautifully.
This post was inspired by the Ben Huberman’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Infinite. Do go see what the others have done with the challenge!
Here’s what some people who’ve been to the Abbey have said so far:
