Orthodox Cathedrals

I have yet to post religious structures. Here they are. What I find beautiful in the insides of Orthodox cathedrals is the sudden transportation. Is this just architecture? I'd argue that this is an aesthetic experience, mystical, worldly and rooted in form and material, yet transcendent. Overwhelming, decadent, ornate--like no other space, meant to change the space in your head.
