Meanwhile, there are plenty of other treasures to enjoy.
|Statuary galore including this Adam ( a bit more modest than David)|
|Ornately carved altar piece|
|Crucifixion detail from above altar piece|
|Tapestry (not a very good angle)|
|The heads of state, aka: kings of France|
|Crucifixes and chalices (sorry about weird color; lighting very poor and no flash allowed)|
|Delicate gold rose; same problem with lighting|
|Chess and domino board and game pieces|
|Jewelry of gold and lapis in, again, strange green lighting|
All of this, plus much more we wandered through for a couple of hours. Then it was to the market for a few supplies and home for lunch. Afterward we watched Romance and Reality, Part 3 of the Kenneth Clark "Civilisation" series. It will tell you all you might want to know about the High Middle Ages with more information about the Flemish tapestries.
Tomorrow is a trip to the Jacquemart-André Museum. The collection offers a look into the lives of a middle-class French couple who put their life's efforts into collecting and living among beautiful things.
