textile inspiration in rome

there were so many textures and textiles that inspired me in rome - here are a few..

a splendidly hatted horse outside the Pantheona rather spunky Amazon at the Colosseum
some truly amazing ruching on a papal frock in St Peter's
trompe l'oeil curtains in the vatican musem
 drapery fragments again in the vatican museum
and the most moving statue i have ever seen - st cecilia in trastevere
