All The World’s A Stage
I was going to switch gears and take a break from my Winter Garden images but I was watching the Oscars last night…Ahhh…the fashion, the jewels, the musical numbers, the movies! So given my “magic of make believe” state of mind I thought that another image of the Winter Garden was appropriate.
Here’s a closer look at the stage and the fire curtain. Should a fire break out backstage or on the stage the fire curtain comes down and restricts the passage of heat and flames from the stage to the audience area. The fire curtain you see here is the original hand painted one from 1913 which was restored in the 80′s.
I want to draw your attention to the circular light fixture in the upper left hand side of the ceiling. Among the clouds and mountains it’s the moon.
