Very striking. I like the clock a lot, too!

Is there a resemblance between the sculpture and the other young lady or is it my imagination...that's quite some plaque that it's set in and a very nice clock as well...

Beautiful and ornate. What a richly decorated room!

A tad too formal for my living room, but very nice. :-)

Lois said...

I'm fascinated by the marble Marianne and the clock, it's very unusual, I've never seen anything like it. Can we get some of that fine European fresco action on this side of the pond, I can't get enough of it.

Beautifully gilded. This is such an elegant building.

The ceiling is wonderful. I hope all of the visitors to that room appreciate it! (Or even notice it.)
