Chance and perfection are in this picture where are shown three wonders in a single shot! The rose is called 'Rose of both Adams' because in the medallions from 12 to 6 (if we figure a clock) are human sins symbolized by Adam and Eve and in the reverse way of 12 to 6 is the Christ story, the other Adam, who died to remove our sins; I shall post later more pictures with precise informations about this rose and also about the wonderfull mediaeval clock where a cock sings the hours on top and personages are animated on a complex carrousel! Thank You Carol!
