Fluidity In Stone…

Monumentendag” in The Netherlands is where many churches, Government and historic buildings are open to the public for one or two days of the Monumentendag weekend.

I took the opportunity to visit Hollandspoor Station in The Hague.

This is the other large arch surrounding the main doors of the Queen’s Waiting room, opposite the arch with the crowns that I featured in yesterday’s post.

There is something about foliage and flowing ribbons that I just love in design.

In stone it’s even more amazing because the stonemason must capture the fluidity that it hard to depict in a hard, solid medium as stone.
