Leaves? Upturned boats?


Again these architectural details are open to interpretation. Apparently, the architect of the Parliament building threw some leaves onto a blank piece of paper, and part of the design came from that. There was also a great deal of mention of upturned boats...perhaps a commentary on the state of decline of Scotland's fishing industry!?

Thanks again to Chris H for continuing to push the publish button while I'm enjoying crêpes and cider among my Celtic kinfolk in Brittany!
