Eternal sleep... Marble tombstone of the knight Bernard de Roque, c. 1300. In the late 13th and beginning 14th century, a very specific style of engraved tombstone flourished in Languedoc. Produced in advanced and then only personalized with the name and arms of the custumer, they are not portraits but represent social types: knight, lady, monk... The particularity of this style is the very graphic aspect of the engraving, clear and powerful, as well as the peaceful sleeping expression of the face, at a time when effigies are mostly showing awaken figures with open eyes. The Languedoc tombstones are showing the dead asleep, waiting for the End of Days, and their soft expression shows that their soul is in peace and does not fear the Last Judgement. @museeaugustins #tombstone #funeraryart #grave #knight #armsandarmor #chainmail #effigy #medievalart #middleages #engraving #sculpture #chevalier #languedoc #occitanie

Still powerful today. This funerary portrait from the end of the 2nd or beginning of the 3rd century features a Roman centurion with all of the attributes of his rank. The monument looks deceptively simple. The clarity of the composition doesn't allow the viewer to immediately grasp the subtleties of the carving, and the naturalistic details that seem to defy the very notion that this man might be dead. I was especially impressed with the musculature of the right arm and how tightly the hands clutch the centurion's baton (vitis) and the grip of the sword whose pommel is shaped like the head of an eagle. Found in Seggauberg, Leibnitz and now in Graz, Universalmuseum Joanneum, inv. 157 (111 x 114 x 32 cm) #armsandarmor #armor #romanart #centurion #funeraryart #styria @schlosseggenberg @museumjoanneum

Leonardo Bistolfi's 1904 symbolist masterpiece The Resurrection. This is the Bauer/Bocciardo monument at Staglieno Cemetery; the women are mourning their late sister. This photo was before our restoration, and the marble was being attacked by pollution and biological growth, causing a damaging black crust to form on the surface of the marble. We were able to bring it back to life. #symbolism #artnouveau #libertystyle #italianart #resurrection #sisters #mourning #funeraryart #cemetery_shots

Wall marker from 1676 inside of the chapterhouse at Elgin Cathedral. ~ This octagonal building was added in an expansion of the cathedral in 1270 and has survived mostly intact, even while the rest of the building crumbled, due to the local trades using it as a meeting house. ~ This tiny room is beautifully detailed and the ceiling alone is enough to take ones breath away.

The interplay of light and shadow as the sun rose over the tomb of John de Winchester, Bishop of Moray d.1460, was so striking! ~ In addition to being Bishop, he King James' Master of Works and alterations to Spynie, Inverness and Urquhart castles, and the palace at Linlithgow are attributed to him. ~ He also oversaw the restoration of Elgin Cathedral after it was burned by the Wolf of Badenoch and sacked by the followers of the Lord of the Isles. Given his work with stone-fitters and masons, it is befitting that his tomb would be so intricately carved.

This tomb is one of the most complete in the cathedral. Located in the Southern choir, it is believed to be the final resting place of Sir William Hay of Lochloy, who left this Earthly world in 1421. If true, his is the second oldest tomb of a non-cleric in the most sacred parts of the cathedral. ~ The tomb certainly fits the description found in the book of Family of Hay: "It consists of a large stone sarcophagus with the colossal figure of a knight in complete armour with dirk and spurs still visible. The feet rest upon a lion couchant and the stone bears an inscription." ~ Since the majority of the larger crypts have effigies of clerics, not knights, this description seems pretty plausible to me. Regardless, it's a beautiful and well preserved example of a medieval sculpture and symbolism.

Popping into Elgin for a bit this week to visit some of the medieval tombs within the ruin of Elgin Cathedral, the Lantern of the North, which was dedicated on 19 July 1224. ~ The cathedral's scale is impressive, even in its ruined state. Given that the cathedral began its descent into ruin in 1567, the amount preserved today is truly remarkable and can be attributed largely to one figure we'll spread some time on later this week.

Paris 4e, église Saint-Eustache. "Tombeau de Colbert avec l'allégorie de l'Abondance" par Antoine Coysevox et Charles Le Brun, chapelle absisiale, 1683. Chef-d'oeuvre de la sculpture classique française exhaussé par la virtuosité des drapés et jusque dans la collerette de marbre taillée aussi finement que de la dentelle. Le tout magnifié par l'expresion tragique des deux figures allégoriques, dont la lumière tamisée accentue les traits, qui encadrent ce luxueux enfeu ministériel. #SacredArt #FuneraryArt #ClassicalArchitecture #Catholicchurch #Paris

Coming to the end of the first week of October and closing out our time in Greyfriars Kirkyard with the notorious Mackenzie mausoleum. ~ ~ Lord Advocate "Bluidy Mackenzie" was responsible for the notoriously horrible treatment of those imprisoned in the kirk-adjacent Covenanter's Prison (who are memorialized on the opposite side of the graveyard from this tomb). ~ ~ Given his fearsome reputation in life, it is no surprise his spirit has been credited with scratching, bruising, maiming, and even knocking unconscious unsuspecting visitors to the graveyard. ~ ~ If you dare, find a moment between tour groups to visit the tomb and whisper: "Bluidy Mackenzie, come oot if ye daur, lift the sneck and draw the bar," just don't blame me if your noggin gets knocked!

The memorial of Duncan Ban MacIntyre is incredibly detailed and bears the targe and a pair of red deer - symbols of his best known work, Praise of Ben Doran. ~ His story is fascinating! While he was hired by the Campbells to fight for the government forces during the Jacobite rising of 45, he withdrew from the conflict after the battle of Falkirk. ~ His poems (in Gaelic) belie sympathies with the Highland forces. ~ Likewise, the structure of his works follow the structure of song - specifically the pibroch, the music of a Highland bagpipe - which suits his reputation as a great bard. ~ Indeed, as an illiterate man, his works were worked out in song and recited from memory until they were transcribed and published in Edinburgh in the 1760s. ~ While the translations of Praise of Ben Doran from Gaelic to English vary wildly from one another, one thing remains clear, his love for his country and the wilds of Scotland.

Artful Mundane

  • 01.10.2017 15:59

While this monument is one of the less intricate examples in Greyfriars, it commemorates a unique period in the history of Scotland known as The Killing Time, when approximately 100 Covenanters (Ministers, members, and supporters of the Church of Scotland who ardently defended the Oath of Covenant, which rebuked the imposition of Anglican worship on the Scots) were imprisoned, tortured, and/or executed. The history of what happened during these dark days is truly fascinating and no summary I could write could do justice to the memory the Covenanters, what they stood for, and the enormity of their efforts and sacrifice to ensure the survival of the Church of Scotland. The message on this monument and the fresh flowers left here struck me deeply, even though I am not a particularly religious person, because these events (which happened in the 1600s) haven't been forgotten and still feel relevant to Scottish religious life today.

I'll be focusing my feed on funerary art and the beauty of cemeteries throughout October, officially starting with a look at Greyfriars Kirkyard in Edinburgh, but also featuring other locations in Scotland and here in the States. I hope you enjoy what are, in my opinion, under-appreciated sculptures and monuments to our past.

The action narrative that no-one truly comprehends ! From the Lascaux cave paintings to Egyptian funerary frescoes, the Pazyryk carpet and Heironymus Bosch to Euro Disney and Marvel movies.

I decided to repost this to give the video I posted earlier some context, sry to dbl up. As Above So Below, is a sculpture from my thesis exhibition “Oblivion”. The work is a historically inspired five piece garniture set featuring three urns and two vases with the “victory of death” and “empty set in laurel” motifs. Below the garniture sits, contained in glass, a research specimen of a preserved dog, a large chocolate lab, surrounded by flowers and remnants of broken pottery on black sand. When I was a biology student, I had the opportunity to work for the biology department in their preparations lab as a taxidermist. This experience, although initially revolting, provided me with an extreme appreciation for the role the animals unwittingly play in facilitating the goals of people. Bearing witness to death in a tangible way affected me profoundly as I realized that the nature of humans and animals is more alike than different. I wanted to provide an accessible contemplation of death and a moment of reverence regarding research animals that are normally given an unsanctimonious send-off. The canine specimen was donated for educational purposes to LSU’s comparative anatomy lab in the biology department. This piece seeks to point out the similarities between the broken pots, and the intact; the research animal that is a proxy for humans; and the similarities between a thriving existence and a desolate graveyard. Just as humans attempt to dominate and shape the natural world that we have the ability to control (the microcosm above), so does the natural world render human labors futile with the passage of time (the macrocosm below). When I prepared the specimen for exhibition, I felt loss and empathy: I saw myself" #pottery #wheelthrowing #funeraryart
