A Masterpiece is usually defined as the best work ever produced by an artist, writer, or composer. Seeing the Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal, with all its shock and awe, it’s no doubt that this is a true piece of work, but not only in the sense of the general definition. It also has to do with the history behind the making, and the architects and ecclesiastical corporations who made this small chapel into the church we view today, paying attention to details ranging from the perfect colors to be used in the designs to the type of feeling its walls should give off. However, the Notre-Dame Basilica’s description for Masterpiece is much more than just a beautiful work of art. In truth, it’s an extremely clever or even skillful example of true workmanship and planning as well. Inside you won’t see it, of course, but outside the basilica, you can see two towers, one named La Persévérance and the other La Tempérance. Truth be told, a Masterpiece is in fact all about perseverance and temperance, the will to pursue your dreams with determination, but to also have the self-control to not let it become your obsession, and in consequence, your life. If you do see yourself in one of these pictures and would like to have it taken down for personal reasons, please comment and I’ll be happy to do so.
