What sort of building do you think this is a part of? (Answer later this week - maybe tomorrow)

revenant Goody, a quiz. I've missed these.

Cupola in a square. I'd go for the lighting in a non-conformist church (if that's the correct word, although I believe Quakers call them a meeting house). I'd be tempted to opt for a bank, but there are cross motifs along the base. Go to Galeries Lafayette on Boulevard Haussmann in Paris and you'll see what Mammon can do.

????? Normally this kind of "rosone" is for ceiling or main facade... it doesn't seem into a religious building... for me is a ceiling.

lgnelson Dome of a Muslim mosque? Aren't they the ones that purposefully put imperfections in their work, believing that only God is perfect?
The darker squares on the lower right keep the symetry from perfection. Close???

onlyricky the places I've seen this was in a monastery ... a religious one! though I was not successful when I captured mine...

girafferacing This is absolutely stunning! My guess is it's from a church but I suspect I'm completely wrong!

Wasichseh Museum? But it doesn`t matter, it`s just wonderful!

djnana I don't know, but I'm hooked on symmetry - therefore, I love the perfectly framed circle in the square. Makes me feel giddy!!
(I hope you get a chance to see my "TI" post today....)
