Narrenturm, another take

Narrenturm, another take
The Narrenturm was constructed in 1784, under Emperor Joseph II, by Isidore Canevale. It consisted of a five-storey, fortress-like circular building with 28 rooms and a ring of slit windows, plus a central chamber aligned north-south. There were in total 139 individual cells for the inmates. The building of the Narrenturm was prompted by the discovery of underground dungeons used by the Capuchin monks of Vienna for housing their mentally ill brethren; another factor was that Joseph II had learned about similar institutions in France during his travels there. The construction of the Narrenturm points to a new attitude towards the mentally ill – they began to be distinguished from the rest of society, and not simply classified among the general category of "the poor" - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narrenturm_%28hospital%29

Retro400s in SLD
Lith onto Tura BS138 (20+20+1000+0+20) + selenium/gold. (Why gold? Because I wanted and for muting colours, as the BS138 liths too screamingly)
