Fine Art & Portraits by Laurel
This sculpture was dwarfed in a large hall and stairway. Adding color to the niche increased the scale of the sculpture.
Various motifs from the Italian Arena Chapel brighten the walk upstairs.
These stairs are visible from the dining room. Because they are shallow, they were always scuffed and dirty. Now the dirt is camoflaged by antiqued Imari patterns.
Hand painted carpet motif on a stairway has actually held up better than real carpet.
