The reference to "Stairway to Heaven" wasn't just me being irreverent.....

Met up with some family yesterday (see previous post) at London Victoria and with some time to kill we had a look around the RC Westminster Cathedral. In the gift shop whilst browsing the passion of Christ fuzzy felts sets and the painting by numbers Light of the World by Holman Hunt my niece and I found this lamp. At least I think it was a lamp I didn't pay it too much attention as I rushed to hustle my daughter away from a black nun who she had just asked "are you Whoopi Goldberg....?!"

Edit: BTW, we aren't Roman Catholics...

*Scratches head* thisis a picture of a lamp?
ROFL at daughter : ) Well, was it Whoopi?

Twiglet says:

I know! I'm almost ashamed of it being a lamp!

And as I said to DD: Just because she's a nun and she's black doesn't mean she's Whoopi Goldberg. No more than the white one is Maria Von Trapp......

As far as I can remember it was a stiffened fabric/cardboard cube with an opening in it through which one could see the above pictured staircase. The light bulb was out of sight at the top of the stairs, but illuminated the staircase. I'm sure it has some significance, like maybe it's a model of the staircase in the ancient abbey that housed the Holy hand grenade of Antioch or some such important Catholic relic .....

dude, what are you smokin?? This is a famous photo that is heraled by all worshippers of the evil beings of past and present. It depicts the eternal quest for light that causes the inner soul to pursue the sterp (stairs) that lead to hgiher levels of consciousness (illumination by light) and the curves represent those challenges that one faces during their quest. The original photo was of better quality and if you stared at it closlely, you wold see the illusion that the stairway never ends. Just as eternal life never ends. Many Christians believe that this photo is just th opposite, that the light is God's word as decsribed in 1 John and the stairs are the process of santification where we become more like Christ as we progress through life. Jesus daid, "I am the truth and the light and no one cometh to the Father but by me". Therefore walking through the path of life holding His hand, is the way to be in the light and find eternal life. Believe what you will, but you have to make the choice.

It ain't a famous photo. It's a photo I took of a tacky lamp in the gift shop of Westminster RC cathedral in London, as stated further up the thread. It was cardboard, about 5 inches high and about a tenner. Personally, I'd prefer something a little more enduring as a symbol of eternity, but hey, whatever does it for you....
