Ancient Cathedrals, Chapels, and Places of Worship - Architectural or Structural Details

Challenge has finished
We're looking for color or B & W images of interior or exterior ARCHITECTURAL OR STRUCTURAL DETAILS in Ancient Cathedrals, Chapels, and Places of Worship. For this challenge, we are interested in closeups of specific details of the structure, carvings, statuary, that variety of stuff. For guidance on size of the subject, think nothing larger than perhaps the large double doors leading into a cathedral and preferably smaller. If the image makes one think "ancient", then that's good enough, don't worry about the actual age, I don't want to rule out everything in the US :) Think of these features in isolation from their function on the structure and present them as standalone forms.

67th place
The artistic nature of the St. Mary’s Cathedral in San Francisco evokes a union between heaven and earth through the balanced simplicity that becomes possible through modern engineering. The hyperbolic paraboloid creates a graceful flow upwards until it reaches 190 feet where the four corners meet in a cross.
