Ceiling Medallions





These rather odd looking things are ceiling medallions which are afixed round where the flex for the light bulb hangs out.
It was odd to see them out of context outside a shop.
We have the one second from the left directly above our bed.
It is a pity the photo isn't larger, because, if it was, you could see the funny little face with bug eyes and bat ears which looks down at us.
It's a bit like looking at clouds...........

I love your new banner, too!

These ceiling medallions are beautiful. When I first moved to Marrakesh, I thought all these kinds of things were made by hand. Then we went to install similar-looking ceiling moldings in a few rooms of our home. Imagine my surprise when I found that there are all different styles of molds, and that the plaster is just poured into them. Then you pay for them by the meter.

These are beautiful, and must give your room so much character. Isn't it funny what our eye and imagination can see in things? x

I like the new banner too. I need to take the time and add something besides text to mine.
These ceiling medallions are so cool and ornate.

The intricicies of the design are stunning! Are they plaster?

Elizabeth said...

Yes, the medallions are plaster and very inexpensive about $10 US each - they are poured into molds.
Pretty though.
