Brunelleschi's Lantern, Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, Florence

Concepts: Frame dynamics (alignment); Single point (moderately off-centre)

Description: There are actually two alignments: lines of the Temple of the Apocalypse in Vasari's 'Last Judgement' with the top and right edges of the frame; and the lower-most putti [cherubs] seem to jump off the bottom of the frame. The single point is the brightly-lit negative space of the lantern's interior (although  bigger than what one would expect).

Title: Putti-powered flight
