Sunburst



Chapel of the Visitation
Burgos Cathedral

"A sunburst is a design or figure commonly used in architectural ornaments and design patterns. It consists of rays or 'beams' radiating out from a central disk in the manner of sunbeams. Sometimes part of a sunburst, a semicircular or semi-elliptical shape, is used. Traditional sunburst motifs usually show the rays narrowing as they get further from the centre; from the later 19th century they often get wider." ~ Wikipedia
