Neo-Romanian Style Bellu Church Fence Pillars
Recently I have rifled through my older folders and decided to bring out photos that for various reasons I consider special. They illustrate the cultural identity or the character of the city and may be rare, evocative or among my favorite that I simply would like to share with you.
The pictures below represent the fence pillars of the Neo-Romanian style “Bellu” Church. The church was built between 1925-1934, a time when the Neo-Romanian architectural style was at the apogee of its development. The pillars resemble medieval citadel bastions, conveying the idea of strength and endurance, a message of national identity characteristic to the Neo-Romanian architectural style. The fence pillars are among the most representative of the Neo-Romanian style, and the most expressive I know in Bucharest. Pictures were taken in October 2011.
