Angels Worshipping (right side of the chancel)

Chapel, Palazzo Medici Riccardi, Florence

The singing and praying choirs of angels are embedded in a paradisiacal landscape. In the dark chapel, with the only artificial light coming from candles and torches, the powerful and shining colours and the gold and metal layers on the wall paintings must have created an impressive sight.
