I love that eye-deceiving mosaic pattern. I am still trying to decide if it is an effect, or if the studs are actually standing up…
Best wishes, Pete.
It is an optical effect! Later, in Renaissance architecture, this pattern appeared in its relief form, the so-called diamond. There are numerous buildings in Italy, and other examples elsewhere such as the façade of the famous Casa dos Bicos in Lisbon: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/8d/Casa_dos_Bicos_-_Lisboa.jpg
Thanks for that link, Nandia. I am happy to hear that your photo was an effect though. I can now confirm what my eyes were telling my brain!
