Artistic Ceilings From Around the World

Lying in bed would be an altogether perfect and supreme experience if only one had a colored pencil long enough to draw on the ceiling.
Gilbert K. Chesterton 
 
Ceilings are the closest mankind has come to imitating the natural dome of the world - the skies. We look up wanting to see the beauty above us, unattained and ethereal, yet soothing and wondrous. These ceilings from all over the world make me want to visit these places, so I can gaze in captivated amazement at the artful ideas expressed there. These are truly inspired.
