I wish to further understand the mysteries in this universe through music, art, literature, scientific discovery, observations about the physical world, empathetic experiences of the emotional world, and especially through the human touch of humor and love.

Dome of Faith by rogeriocluis



Initially conceived as a small convent for 13 monks, the project for the Real Convento de Mafra was suffering successive enlargements, ending in a huge building of about 40,000 m2, with all dependencies and necessary belongings to everyday life of 300 Friars of the Order of St. Francis. Its dome, called, the Lantern Tower with 65 meters high and 13 feet in diameter, was the first dome built in Portugal. via 500px http://j.mp/1bPiFsL
