Wikipedia picture of the day on August 18, 2019: Ceiling of the Church of the Society of Jesus (La Iglesia de la Compañía de Jesús), a Jesuit church in Quito, Ecuador. The exterior doesn’t give an idea of the beauty of the interior, with a large central nave, which is profusely decorated with gold leaf, gilded plaster and wood carvings, making of it the most ornate church in Quito. The temple is one of the most significant works of Spanish Baroque architecture in America and considered the most beautiful church in Ecuador. https://ift.tt/2NdS2no

Wikipedia picture of the day on August 12, 2019: The monumental Wittelsbacher fountain in the northern part of central Munich, in Bavaria, Germany. The sculpture on the left is of a woman seated on a bull, holding a bowl, and depicts the healing qualities of water; on the right, a man sits astride a horse and hurls a rock, representing water’s destructive power. Built between 1893 and 1895, the design follows drawings of the sculptor Adolf von Hildebrand. https://ift.tt/2KDPpZ0
