Description

An interior view of Sainte Chapelle's crypt. The springs of the small columns with ornate, composite capitals create an exaggerated ribbed vaulted ceiling. Engaged columns line the walls. The back wall is comprised of stained glass windows. The arches, columns, and ceiling are decorated with symbols of France, such as the fleur-de-lis.
