Absolutely gorgeous. The imagery and the details are amazing.
I would love to think about drawing this if you would allow me to.
Beautiful.

They take death pretty damn seriously up there , don't they? ;D There's a weird mix of styles on this tomb - a bit of putti and more than a touch of leering gargoyles..

What the deceased would have wanted no doubt:) Amazing place.

Different attitude to death then I suspect..it was"in your face" all the time
as opposed to the situation now where its all hidden and hospitalised and clinical.
Yes it is.The churchyard is surrounded by old style tenement houses
with their windows looking out onto the yard....and a view
of the castle too.:)
