Description

An interior view of Milan Cathedral looking down the nave towards the main altar. The ceiling is a ribbed vault with flamboyant Gothic designs. Above the capitals of the colossal columns are statues, which are displayed on two levels. The lower-level statues are situated in a niche-like setting and are surmounted by a canopy. Each statue on both levels is separated by a column with a pinnacle.
