Today’s Photo Friday (#FriFotos on Twitter) theme is STONE. Pictured above is the Chapel of the Holy Cross in Sedona, AZ that was built on stone (literally) – in this case, into the side of a mountainside.
The Roman Catholic church takes its inspiration architecturally from Frank Lloyd Wright, who famously incorporated nature into his designs. Sedona sculptor Margarite Staude commissioned the project, which was completed in 1956. She dedicated the chapel toward “Finding God through Art.” People come from all over the world to see it.
The church also supposedly the site of one of the famous Sedona vortices. We didn’t feel anything unusual when we visited, but you never know.
