The origins of the word ‘Plenary’ dictate that it encompasses everything. There is a certain absoluteness to the design and certainly to the word. The idea that an oval shape would be all-encompassing is one that has roots in the Baroque churches of Europe from the 17th century.
One perfect example exists contemporaneously in Rome - the church at San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane where the centerpiece above the middle of the design is an oval that allows pristine natural light through the oval structure of the domed ceiling. This mirror is similar to the beautiful scene portrayed through this amazing skylight - it offers clean crisp light reflection and offers insight into the oval as a symbol for long-lasting beauty and symmetry.
