a sumptuous interior by quietpurplehaze

a sumptuous interior

This is in Portsmouth Cathedral. We had visited the outside often but never thought to go inside until our friend, Ellie, asked about it.

I am glad she did as it is really beautiful.

On the altar cloth is the tree of life, also represented on the entrance doors.

Yes, I think so, Wendy and the cathedral is also known as The Cathedral of the Sea.

Yes, much more to see inside! The exterior does not give a good indication of what lies in the interior....

Thank you, Phil. The plain exterior gives no clue that one might use ‘sumptuous’ for the interior!
