PhotoHunt: Triangle

photohunter7iq.png

This week's theme is "Triangle."

Many triangles decorate the apse of the Basilica dei Santi Maria e Donato (also known as San Donato di Murano), a church built in 1140 on the island of Murano in the Venetian lagoon.

This is one of the oldest and finest churches in Venice. Inside, there's a beautiful golden mosaic of Mary, and amazing multi-colored Byzantine mosaic floors with foilage and peacocks.

Hi Annie, awesome PhotoHunt selection! That's a very beautiful church and I love the mosaics inside of it. I didn't visit Murano in 2007 and now I wished that I had so I could've seen this wonderful church. The Triangle designs really stands out. The details on this church is pretty amazing!

Thanks for posting these cool photos and have a great holiday weekend too Annie!

Love your take on this weeks theme. Great photos too!

I found it hard to find triangles in my house this week but I did finally find some.

Mine's up and ready...come on over!

Appropriate photo! Menehune

Beautiful photos of this church. I thought I recognized it but couldn't place it til you mentioned Murano. It was closed when I was there. I only took a couple of photos. Wish I took more. Will have to go back again (darn it!). :)

Beautiful photos, Annie. I’ve been to Murano twice but never made it to the Basilica. I now regret not making time to visit it. The mosaic of the Madonna is stunning and so are the mosaic floors.

I see that you enjoyed perfect Venetian weather, with such blue, clear skies.

jgk:

Visiting the church was every bit as fascinating and impressive as the glass on Murano. Thanks for posting and reminding me of it.
