In a grand palace painting gallery a great moment in history is about to take place. At right, a cluster of high ranking military men anticipate the arrival of important clergy and their minions onw streaming into the room through a rear door.Note red cushion at foreground left. Large period desk at the center of the space. Epical paintings decorate the high walls. More of the "red and gold" look. (Jim Hahn 11/16/94)
