Fonthill: Columbus Room – Ceiling Tiles

The images in this post are just an example of the many tile mosaic scenes installed in the Columbus Room Ceiling.  These isolated images only provide a glimpse of the elaborate ceiling decorations.  I am still figuring out how I can best create an image of the full ceiling.  I think I will need to lay on my back on the floor and do a panoramic sweep across the ceiling.  I also would like to know the “full story” behind the many different scenes.  I will need to do a lot of research, hopefully with the a member of Fonthill’s knowledgeable staff.
