CandlesChapel

Candles in the chapel by Jaxpix50.
Walsingham in Norfolk is England’s oldest shrine and is dedicated to Mary. The shrine itself was built in 1061 , 5 years before the Norman invasion of England. It was always known as England’s Nazareth and was visited by pilgrims from all over Britain and Europe. it was visited by all the Kings and Queens of england from Henry 111 (c1226) through to Henry V111 . At the time of the reformation of course everything was destoryed and there is now only the outline of where the shrine was. The Augustinians built a priory near the site of the shirne and although that to was destroyed a wall or two remain to remind us of the magnificence of the buildings.

HeadlessMonk

Headless monk taken by goldsmithexile
Traditional English sculpture, seen at Monk Soham church. The monk had his head smashed off by the protestant reformers. I think the broken aspect of this piece adds enormously to its expressive power.

ThePhotographic

The photographic taken by goldsmithexile.

ChurchPorch

Church Porch @ Thwaite taken by goldsmithexile.
I came across these unexpected gems at Thwaite church, carved on the inside roof beams of the entrance porch. They have a very early look and feel to them, they remind me of viking prow carvings.

2Altar

2 altar dyptych seen @ Eye taken by goldsmithexile.
I mimicked the renaissance dyptych folding panel tradition as a pattern to set out the grid of shots for this pano. Its a mystery how the older left hand romish altar remained unsmash’d and relatively in tact after 500 years. But then folks in Suffolk seem to always have liked their high churchy traditions and rituals. I think the so called iconoclasts often made politically opportune and necessary token gestures during the time of the reformation and dissolution of the romanist religion in England, in Suffolk at least.

HalfHearted

Half hearted iconoclasm C1550-2009 taken by goldsmithexile.
This is such a weirdly unusual thing. You can see where someone scratched the face off of some obscure painted “saint”, probably done reluctantly and under duress, during the time of the dissolution of romanist religion and subsequent protestant reformation in England. I sort of like this old panel. Not because its part of a catholic altar/shrine-I would want to have been an enthusiastic icon smasher, not icon maker…. But it actually reminds me of some of picassos work (apart from the apalling draftsmanship of the painted figure that is-picasso could definately draw very well).I like the shallow relief forms and surfaces, reflected light, odd textures and colors, asymetric symmetry, etc. In a way I think I can see why people get seduced by icons and relics and idols; the patina of age has some sort of mysterious timeless appeal which can only increase the longer it is in existence?

Carving1

Carving#1 taken by goldsmithexile.Seen on a stone font at Monk Soham church. The heads were all smashed away by the reformation “iconoclasts”. I can discern a link in this carving between the romanesque relief carving style like they used on roman tombs, and the work of Henry Moore.

CrossReferences

Cross references taken by goldsmithexile.

ChurchEnglish

Church of english taken by goldsmithexile.
I liked the various spatial devices at work in this composition. The carved panels are so twee and earthily mediaeval in character. You could still see odd remnants of red painted color on them despite their being defaced and smashed at some point in our illustrious tempestuous history. I rather like it that some examples of the iconoclast’s efforts are still visible, its like when they leave a bombed out building untouched for future generations to see, as a reminder of a war or something.

Tradescantia spathacea, Moses in the Bulrushes and Boat Lily are some of the names given to this beautiful summer flower that has just started blooming in our garden.

TheSnow

The snow is back and so are the Fallow stags! So thrilled to see them this morning, but no way to get closer in a snowy field. Oh, for a DSLR……..!! taken by JUDI2007.

DeadChurch

Dead church interior by goldsmithexile.
Cubist interpretational reinvention of a dismally dull and austere church interior. It felt like a mausoleum in there, very uninspiring!

One Response to “Images that need verses”

  1. A couple of possibilities…

    The boy with the lightning ball: Job 36:32 (esp in GNB)
    The wild ponies: Job 39:5 (although it doe say ‘donkeys’ in the text)

    At a push, though it doesn’t quite do it for me, the baby and father could link to Psalm 131
