Thursday’s Special: Traces of the Past

It’s All In The Details

Architectural detail, Chapel, University of Coimbra, Portugal

Details of the 18th century Baroque organ in Saint Michael’s Chapel at the University of Coimbra, in Coimbra, Portugal. Note the  Chinese  (chinoiserie)  motifs  between the floral moldings.  Painter Gabriel Ferreira da Cunha decorated the organ in 1737.  It has about 2,000 pipes and still works. The Chapel itself was designed in the 16th century as a royal chapel, before the palace became a university.
