    As the reporter said, this is an amazing painting. I am fascinated with the level of so much detail in the dome. I think my favorite part is where the angels are carrying Mary up to Heaven, but I also enjoy the many others characters that were identified in the work. I like how Correggio faded everyone out as he came to the top of the dome to allow all of the light to shine through with only Jesus there to greet Mary.
