In the photographer's words: "During the celebration of Pentecost the Pantheon is turned into a christian church. Following the mass the fire department of the city of Rome climb to the top of the Pantheon's dome and pour hundreds of bags of blessed rose petals through the oculus to the space below. There just happened to be a bird flying through the space at the time of this great celebration which added to the already amazing feeling generated in the space."
