McMenamins St. Francis Interiors 2017 — photo 60 of 62: The Turkish Bath at the McMenamins Old St. Francis School in downtown Bend, Oregon. Their Walking Tour Guide PDF describes it as: “The crown jewel of McMenamins soaking pools, it could take a whole day in here to see its wonders. The Sun and Moon stained glass windows high above the bath were created by master craftsman David Shlicker. Schlicker also produced the unique light fixtures in this room. The movement of water is ever present with the fountain and spouting lions. Hundreds of custom, hand-glazed tiles line the pool, and four massive murals take up the wall space. Justyn Livingston’s beautiful tile work, done in a Byzantine style — with some Celtic touches — is based on St. Francis’ life and his compassion for animals.” May 2017.
Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
