Model Architecture

Model Architecture

No takers for my question on Saturday asking what 17th Century grand house this was the front door to. It was the Casa Lercaro in La Orotava, often cited as the best example of Canarian architecture. This photo is of a model of that mansion, and was part of a nativity display in La Orotava's library, back in 2006/7. (This beautiful scale model can still be seen, as it is now on display at the Museo de las Alfombras (Carpet Museum), showing the history and methods of the making of the sand and flower carpets that are the tradition of the town's annual Corpus Christi celebrations.) See where this picture was taken. [?]

This takes a considerable amount of time and effort, for which she receives no payment whatsoever. If you find this work useful or interesting, please buy her a coffee. Buy Pamela Stocks a Coffee
