Artistic Details

This is one of the art deco light fixtures on the ceiling of the living area inside Tovrea Castle.  Each light fixture and wall sconce is surrounded by delicate painted stenciling.

The photo to the left shows a broader view of the living area with the early morning sun streaming through the windows.

And to think they paid so much attention to the ceiling.

Couldn't for the life of me figure out what it was whenI viewed it on the portal. Birdman's comment is right on... the light in magnificent!

I agree, magnificent lights. So even though this castle is not open for tours you were able to obtain entry. How exciting.

The interior looks as fascinating as the outside.

What a lovely room this is going to be when finished and imagine how it looked in it's heyday. The views must have been amazing.

If the rest of the detail is finished off as well as the lights Sharon, I can't wait to see it finished, love the big windows too.

I love art deco! Some day I will just have to go inside this place. It must have a wonderful view.

It must have been quite the place in its day!

The floor invites tango and waltz dancers..

It is very delicate and earthy. Are you involved with the group that is preserving this structure?
