St Mary's Cathedral, Lights of Christmas

The facade of St Mary's Cathedral, located along College Street, has been featuring Lights of Christmas, a light projection show running until Christmas Day. This view is across Cathedral Square in Cook and Philip Park. In celebration of the 500th Anniversary of the artworks that adorn the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel by Italian Renaissance artist Michelangelo, the iconic image of "The Creation of Life" is featured, in which God reaches out and gives life to Adam with the touch of his finger.

  1. Spectacular, but to me nothing is as pretty as St. Mary's stone-colored stone.
    Uh oh, a nude man on the cathedral. Did Cardinal Pell OK this? ;)
