Artist's description:

A digital image of Ely Cathedral's Octagon I was lying on my back on the tiled floor. Final editing consists of tonal and colour adjustments.

'The timber octagon that sits on the tower of the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity at Ely is one of the greatest engineering feats of the Middle Ages. Completed in 1334, it weighs around 400 tons'.

'The timber lantern was designed by William Hurley, the King's carpenter. It is framed by eight vertical oak posts 63ft high, each weighing 10 tons. Imagine the difficulty of raising these posts more 100ft in the air to position them on the stone base. The posts are braced by a complex framework of timber struts and curved members with a compression ring at the top, vaulted in timber above'.
