30.08.10 – Edinburgh, Rosslyn Chapel

Visited Rosslyn Chapel, and spent quite some time looking at the intricate details, in this little chapel. The founder of the chapel brought skilled stone masons from around the country to build this chapel. Rosslyn village was also founded as a consequence of housing this community of stone masons.

Although the interior of the chapel had been painted over with grey cement, one can still see the details, and formulate one’s own interpretation of the carvings.

Thanks to The Da Vinci’s Code, this chapel now sees more visitors than before. Hopefully the visitors’ contributions (which is very expensive in my opinion) will go towards fruitful conservation.
