Angels over Venice

DPP_0513v3

Various statues both biblical and historical in nature stand on the arches of the St Mark’s Cathedral. What I originally took to be mosaics on the facade (overdose of Gaudi) turned out to be colored marble slabs. The amount of detail in these statues and carvings are just amazing, and it definitely showcases its Byzantine influence.
