A photo a Week: Gilded

Waltham Abbey 15.07 (4)

This is Waltham Abbey in England, near London with a few gilded things. Actually this gilded subject seems to be a monopoly of churches. The St. Urs cathedral in our local town of Solothurn also has some gilded ornaments.

And this groups of gilded figures are even kept behind locked gates.

  1. I think it’s also a thing in European churches. Only the very biggest fanciest cathedrals in the U.S. have any kind of gilding. On the other hand, we have a lot of gilded domed government buildings … none of which i could find a picture of!
