EXPERIENCE THE architecture and ICONOGRAPHY of ROSSLYN CHAPEL IN 4K (ULTRA HD).
In mid-fifteenth century Scotland a wealthy knight, Sir William St. Clair, built Rosslyn Chapel just before the first printing presses. At that time over 98% of Scots were illiterate and this a pandoras box of mystical Catholic symbolism was designed to be used as a method of liturgical communication. Over time the symbols have come to mean something different to every observer, but this exhibition urges you to see beyond the carvings and to consider the designers mastery over the secrets of geometry, shape, scale, ratio, proportion and symmetry.
