In the cloisters outside of the Barcelona Cathedral is a rather impressive floor. A granite floor covered with engravings of various designs surrounds the space and would go completely unnoticed without looking down. After digging around the internets, I discovered that they’re actually tombs of medieval craftsmen. Each guild is represented by the symbol of their trade, scissors for tailors, shoes for cobblers, oars for ship builders and so on. Those without a guild specific marking donned their family crest or coat of arms. I accidentally noticed the dozens of engravings surrounding the cloisters during a recent visit and immediately became the weird American taking pictures of the floor. After a second look, I’m impressed by two things, 1.) these things still look great, especially after having been walked on for hundreds of years, and 2.) they would look great on ties, unless of course Mr. Lauren has already beat us to it.
