From: London, England
Westminster Abbey is a great example of the use of Fan Vaults, a form of transformation of the normal rib vaults into a form of architectural embroidery. The ceiling is said to look like an organic mass that hardened in the process of melting. The architects decided to not use the normal version of rib vaults, and in their place multiplied the number of lines, and made them into intricate forms. These fan vaults make the ceiling uniquely decorative, and uniquely English. The Church was used, and still is used, for the burial of the English monarchs.
Why This Artwork?
Westminster Abbey was chosen to show the various forms of architecture used, like this fan vault, and the difference from the English, and French Gothic styles.
