Project Description

In keeping with my overall theme of Antoni Gaudi, the Lost World prompt made me think of descending into the crypt of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. This spiral staircase was designed by Gaudi and looking down into the spiral makes me think about where it would lead. All the original drawings and models of the cathedral were lost in July 1936 when revolutionaries set fire to the crypt and broke their way into the workshop, partially destroying Gaudí’s original plans, drawings and plaster models, which led to 16 years of work to piece together the fragments of the master model. So in keeping with the prompt this world was lost.
