At a museum exhibit today, I was impressed by the scale of the work.
Some of it was enormous, with intricate decoration.
Some of it had tiny, intricate parts that must have taken a month for a space of only 2 x 2 inches.
Some of it had the most painstaking collection of hundreds of thousands of tiny steps.
The total scale of the work was beautiful.
Individual input was time-consuming and masterful.
When work like that is done, it serves its immediate purpose.
Then, over hundreds of years, it serves an even greater purpose.
A glimpse into the craftsmanship and devotion which makes it worth looking at hundreds of years later.
What is the scale of the work you are doing?
