no, it is not…
…no, it is not a chapel, not
a sanctuary and in any case not
a tomb. It is simply a place
enclosed by four stone walls,
while another stone at the
center might be the altar. The
entrance is screened by a tree
we want to conserve. The walls,
inside, have a ledge on which we
can sit and wait… waiting with
our feet on the ground, head in
hands. “Things themselves know
when they ought to happen.”
(David Mourão-Ferreira)

    I appreciate the posts. Currently I’ve been doing a work of this delicate chapel. Just been wondering may I get more clear resolution picture of this chapel’s demension as shown in the last few pictures?
