Ettal Abbey, Bavaria, Germany -- What else did we expect to find at the top of a Christian dome than the Holy Spirit, here holding the cord of the chandelier in his teeth. Zeiller probably made his living on his back as he has dozens of ceiling frescoes to his credit. His models appear well fed. The Trompe-l'œil ring around this innermost fresco is particularly effective given the distance from the viewers on the floor below.
