A Study of the Tiara (from Papal Tombs)

From the Sacred Grotto of the Vatican Basilica.


  1. How luck these Popes (and all the people of the time were too), to have believed before there ever was a "Protestant Reformation" UGH!

  2. The finials on the upper two tiaras (tiare?) look like they were pompoms. Then again, it must be my eyes playing tricks on me.

    No. 2 looks the most basic of them.

    Oh, please bring it back! Bring them all back!
