St. Peter, Alvada

With all of the lights available in the world, why mar this beauty with something that ugly?

The yellow globe with an Edison base (I believe they were 7.5 w) screwed into the ceramic socket mounted on a black/dark brown metal plate, right dead center over the door on the front.

To my personal and admittedly idiosyncratic eye, it looks completely out of place, ugly as s__, and is very distracting.

Think of all the lights manufactured in this world that would appear like they belonged there -- and would add to the beauty of this lovely old heirloom.
