It's in the details

Detail for King's Chapel

 You know the old saying it's in the details. In Cambridge it really is in the details. Details are everywhere. On the sides of buildings on the tops of buildings, in the doorways, on the seat you’re sitting in. On the floors you’re walking on. It's a joy to look around.  Details are everywhere, smiling faces in stone looking down at you and up at  you.  It's absolutely amazing you don't even have to walk you can stand in one place and turn in a circle.

Details of Women were harder to find

Some of the statues looked like they were keeping a watchful eye.

Madonna and Child, Details of Cambridge

Some showed little concern.

I couldn't believe some of the carvings.

Look at the roses around the deer's neck.
