the Cathedra Mirror

In All, Mirrors by Mark Evans

Cathedra Mirror in case

The Cathedra mirror is a small tribute to all the eye blasting gilded shafts of light that embellished many baroque Catholic churches.  The rays are actually plexiglass cocktail picks that have been fused together and rolled in gold leaf.  Turns out that the picks were more fragile than I thought so I had a custom made display box made to protect the frame.

The center “mirror” is a large resin cabochon made by me and backed with a mirror,

This mirror is about 15 inches in diameter.  It is currently in my studio waiting to be shipped to one of my showrooms.  If you are interested contact me directly.

The Cathedra Petri in Saint Peter’s in Rome.

(1657-66)

Made of gilded bronze, stucco, marble and glass, Gian Lorenzo Bernini’s Cathedra Petri is the grandios climax of the central apse of Saint Peter’s cathedral in Rome.  The Cathedra Petri was designed to hold the, supposed, throne of the first pope, Saint Peter.  It is designed on an immense scale to anchor the far end of the apse  Each of the four bronze Church Fathers that lightly hold the bronze throne are five meters high, the largest bronzes to be cast since antiquity.
