🌌”Reach For the Heavens.”🌌 🔥 I have been captivated by this       💖 sculptural #masterpiece and the genius creative mind that derived it, since I first saw it in a #design book,  many moons ago.🌜⚪🌛A feast for my eyes 😍 and imagination I have been riveted ever since. I’ve always wanted to honor and pay my respects to this #iconic tour de force, that has fascinated 🤯 and brought me such intrigue and pleasure for so long. Finally here it is, my homage and graphic #rendering✒️💻📏of the #celestial and magnificent, 💕 🕍 “Basilica de la Sagrada Familia” 🕍 by Master Architect … 📐Antoni 🌁 Gaudi.✍🏼 ✏️Gaudi’s earthbound  #giant #cathedral✨🕍✨is a heavenly #monument at 560 feet tall and was originally designed in #1882. This #colossal #minorbasilica is being erected in #Barcelona 💃 #Spain and is scheduled for completion in 2026⏳; the centennial anniversary of Antoni Gaudi’s demise.🥀 🏗️ The temple’s long, arduous, and laborious construction 🛠️ has lasted 140 years, surviving a Spanish Civil War, nine architects since Gaudi’s death, and a global pandemic.🌎
The style of the #church combines elements of #ArtNouveau #SpanishLateGothic and #CatalanModernism. As a devout #Catholic Gaudi’s vision was to depict and construct the three principal dogmas of #Catholicism:   ✨🕊️✨ 1. #TheNativityFaçade /east side
2. #ThePassionFaçade /west side
3. #TheGloryFaçade /south side ⚒️👥Gaudi utilized natural, organic, rigid, geometric, and highly symbolic figures, and shapes which were all constructed and carved out of stone.👥⚒️ His dream has slowly manifested and was one of his most ambitious and creative #tributes to #Christianity, serving #God through his passion for #architecture.📐🌁✍🏼 🔥 My #drawing illustrates, 💖 “The Passion Façade,” which accounts the bleakness, suffering, crucifixion, and death of Christ. ✝️ #AntoniGaudi wanted this façade stripped of ornamentation; to look and feel cold and rigid in order to evoke the austere and cruel intentions and sins of man. 🖤💔💀💔🖤 Mission accomplished! And now with this homage to two of my favorites … so is mine! 📝
