Ceiling Roses

Fitz, originally uploaded by Neorelix.

The Fitzwilliam Museum (founded in 1816 but not built until 1837-45) is one of Cambridge's treasures and is worth spending half the day on. It has an eclectic collection of exhibits - a lot of which have been bequeathed to it by university alumni. If you look up as you enter this is what you'll see. The detail is mind-boggling.
