💀💀💀 The Last Judgement/Triumph of Death, Grottes de Abbaye de Brantôme (troglodytic monastery), Périgord vert, Dordogne, France

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A 5 metre high 16th century bas-relief depicting the Crucifixion is in one of the caves located behind the abbey church. It was created next to another relief, a 15th century Last Judgement. Both are vigorously carved in limestone that has been almost completely blackened in parts by moisture.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The Last Judgement is unfinished, however three parts are distinguishable: At the top is a seated God-like figure, next to which is a bent figure on his right, often interpreted as the Virgin, who beseechs him. Below, two kneeling Angels sound long trumpets. Between them is a figure usually interpreted as Death, who appears to be getting the full blast of their trumpets. The lower part represents the Dead, four on the left and four on the right, who supposedly answer the Angels’ call to emerge from their tombs on Judgement Day. Guardian monks kneel on either side of this ensemble. Comparisons have been made between this grouping and the Dances Macabre fashionable in the sixteenth century.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This combination of the Last Judgement with the The Triumph of Death, or alternatively a Legend of the Three Living and the Three Dead, is common across southern Europe at least from the 14th century. Think of the monumental Camposanto frescoes in Pisa attributed to Buonamico Buffalmacco combining, across four gigantic panels The Lives of the Anchorite Monks, The Last Judgement, the Three Living and the Three Dead, and a Satanic Hell scene. The intervening period between these frescoes and the Brantôme bas reliefs saw millions die in a series of plagues caused by the Black Death... continued in comments ...

I am fascinated by old railway cottages, lived in, abandoned, on working lines or lost lines. I will be creating a new series of works based on 19/20th century railway buildings next year. Meanwhile I will be roaming the department for interesting old railway buildings. Have any near you? Send me a photo and location in the comments on this post on my FB page.. and maybe it will feature in my next collection.
Je suis fasciné par les anciens bâtiments des chemins de fer; habité, abandonné, près d’une ligne encore en usage ou une ligne perdu. Pendant la prochaine année je chercherai les bâtiments et constructions interessant du 19/20 siècle qui étaient en connection avec les chemins de fer. Vous avez une exemple près de chez vous? Mettez une photo avec location dans les commentaires de ce post sur ma page FB et peut être cela sera un de mes tableaux de ma nouvelle collection en 2019!

Marcher sur l’eau 💦☀️ avant l’invention de la machine à laver, les femmes du village venaient à cet endroit facile d’accès pour faire leur linge. On les appelaient les lavandières. Quant à moi, il n’y a encore pas si longtemps, je vivais dans une grande ville pleine de voitures, de bruits et à cette époque de l’année, je pensais aux soldes. Je ne regrette rien mais je suis contente de la tournure qu’a pris ma vie et le chemin est encore long et riche 🍀

In the Dordogne region, you can’t swing a cat without hitting a chateau. Le Château de Castelnaud, restored last century, has an amazing collection of medieval arms but also some of the most amazing views. #chateaudecastelnaud #france🇫🇷 #roadtrip #dordogne

🍙 Brantôme - The Last Judgement cave – varying interpretations throughout history:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Transcription of information panel:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This extraordinary cave, decorated with bass–reliefs, remains something of an enigma. Numerous writers in different periods has suggested a whole range of interpretations.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Popular fancy would have us believe that the carvings are a depiction of a pagan divinity. We will demonstrate the absurdity of such opinions.” (F. Jouannet, 1816.)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“I believe that it depicts the triumph of death over life. It seems to me that the figure that we can see above between two ghosts, Is a symbol of life, represented by the head of a woman, the features of which are African but fairly regular.” (F. Jouannet, 1816.)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"This Is a dreadful scene of the Last Judgment.“ (Abbé Audierne, 1842.)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"Let us observe in passing that it is always Christ who presides over the Last Judgment, which shows that this is the depiction of some other event. For it is impossible to recognise the figure of Christ in this portrayal of an old man." (Marquis de Fayolle, 1820.)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"Hermetic symbols, obscure and confused“ (Jean Secret. 1962.)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Time is no point in continuing such speculations. A Better procedure, surely, is simply to consider the functioning of religious symbolism, while accepting that we shall never be certain of its meaning. What, therefore, do we find in this carving? ... continued in comments ...
