There is a variety of ways through which artists and people of faith seek to communicate their love and adoration for what lies beyond the skies above. The use of light and stained glass have made numerous cathedrals in Europe a breathtaking sight to behold, and this was most certainly part of the thinking behind the ‘Luminarie De Cagna’, a literal cathedral of light that was a prominent feature at the 2012 Light Festival in Ghent, Belgium.
While we strongly encourage anyone with the finances to go to Ghent for this festival to see the other attractions, for us it’s all about this colossal creation. Constructed out of a metal frame and 55,000 LED lights, this imposing yet beautiful structure comes to us from the artistically inspired De Cagna family of Italy and was proudly featured and immensely popular during the festival. It is a wondrous sight to behold that represents the great works of artists, their sources of inspiration, ingenuity, and creativity.
