BtssB: Key to the heaven~Holy church of the bless

I adore this newest print from Baby, the Stars Shine Bright, mainly because of the religious theme of it! It does look slightly tacky, but still interesting enough for me to want to get it haha

The very idea of Heaven's Key, a key to unlock the gates of heaven is very intriguing, and though the main part of the print isn't particularly shown in detail, a little digging revealed that the designers from Baby drew inspiration from two chapels and a basilica: Cappella Palatina, the Sistine Chapel and Basilica of Santa Croce. All three buildings are located in Italy.

For some reason, the top part of the print in navy reminds me of the Sistine Chapel's ceiling and the Last Judgement:

Without seeing the print in detail though, I can't really say if the series' only nod to the three buildings is in the names of the dress cuts, or whether the designers have taken any elements from the art and architecture of them and put them into the print.
