Starry, Starry Night

Ceiling of Christian IV’s chapel, Roskilde Cathedral, Roskilde, Denmark

Roskilde Cathedral is the burial site of Denmark’s kings and Queens. Work on the nave and central structure of the church dates to the 13th century. Over time, as space for burials ran out, chapels were added to the sides of the cathedral. Construction of King Christian IV’s Dutch Renaissance style burial chapel began in 1641 and was completed in 1641. The interior decoration, however, was not added until the 19th century. The starry vaulted ceiling and allegorical paintings were executed by Heirich Eddelien between 1845 and 1852.

Thanks. FYI, your comment was sent to my spam folder. 🙂 I think some of my pingpabcks and comments are going to people’s spam as well. Sigh.
