Candelabra at the Cloisters

39. Candle(light)

39. Candle(light)

So I had to stretch the theme a bit here. No, there is no candle “light” exactly, but this is kind of a neat candelabra.  I’m doing a subtle substitution.

BTW, I consider myself a pretty decent speller, but the word ‘candelabra’ had my totally stumped. Was it “d-l-e” or “d-a-l” or “d-e-l”? So if nothing else, at least I know how to spell a new word.

As for the candelabra, it’s a rather ancient fixture–15th century or so. And another photograph from the Cloisters in NYC.
