Art museum in Santiago

A large mural done with photos.  I thought it looked  like a quilt.
A large overview

A little closer view of the individual photos

An overview of the outside setting

a few close up views
simple pictures turn different ways just like quilt blocks.

Tile floors

On the floor  in front of a kiosk

Quilt patterns are everywhere!

this was the only baby block square I could find in the church....was it used to replace a broken HST?

borders and blocks

HST around a design

painted tiles come together to form new patterns

HST forming large squares within squares

combining blocks

An outdoor "quilt" made of tiles

sightseeing in Santiago

Inside the Cathedral
"Catedral Metropolitana", consecrated 1775, it is the 5th church on this site and this one had a neoclassical makeover between 1780-89.
