The BBC have recently done a video report that Italian restoration workers at the Church of the Nativity in the West Bank city of Bethlehem have been showing off a stunning mosaic of an angel that was previously hidden beneath plaster.
Tensions between different Christian denominations have long delayed the repairs at the church.
But the Palestinian Authority brokered a deal between them enabling restoration work to start three years ago.
One of the museums I would love to revisit is the Guggenheim Museum in New York. Unfortunately it isn’t the most affordable trip from the UK, which is why a new online tour of the museum will be a welcome addition to Google Street View.
Captured using tripod-mounted cameras, Street View trolley cameras and even drones, anyone with Internet access can explore the museum’s well-known spiral staircase, which has been featured in scores of movies.
By navigating to a special Google-created site, users can virtually stroll through the museum’s halls and peer up through the structure’s Frank Lloyd Wright–designed circular skylight (known in the museum as the oculus).
