BBC TV show on the Cosmati pavement

by David Clayton on November 5, 2010

This was recently brought to my notice by Strat Caldecott in his Beauty in Education blog. The BBC art critic Andrew Graham-Dixon discusses the floor and its current restoration. It has some very interesting shots of the 13th century Westminster Pavement and refreshingly, he quite happy to refer to the cosmological aspect of its design (although always as though it is a historical detail, rather than still part of the Catholic understanding of the world).

Thank you for this … quite wonderful. I’ve long been a fan of Cosmati pavements, and am always pleased to find new material about them. And, of course, this video clip was beautifully done.
