Iron Lace

Elaborate wrought iron craftsmanship throughout Vienna—and Austria—delights my eye and leaves me with a sense of deep appreciation for the skills involved in planning and executing such lace-like, delicate designs from such a strong metal. These are from Michaelerkirche (St. Michael's Church) near the Hofburg Palace:

And because the chancel of this church is also exceptional, I'm including a photo of it even without wrought iron. The ceiling does have a lace-like quality.
