More of the Yusupov Palace

The mantelwork on this fireplace is papier mache


The Prince's Library...

Stained glass windows on the interior of the house, light from behind by artificial light.

One of many spectacular chandeliers with an elaborate boss on the ceiling.

Papier mache??? Wow. I can't even Imagine the time it took to make this elaborate mantel.

I guess I have to be happy I don't have to dust these amazing details!
