The Stage

This is the Globe Theatre Stage, the oak pillars are painted to look like marble with golden leaves. The painted roof of the stage is called the Heavens and is painted with the sun, moon and the zodiac, a selection of ropes & rigging allow for special effects. Behind the pillars is the stage wall called the 'Frons Scenae' (taken from the name given by Imperial Rome to the stage walls of their amphitheatres).
