Epitaaf . . .

.
.
.
Just outside the cemetery in Belgium featured in the previous post, where there is an underground burial area the likes of which I've never seen before, there is a funerary art museum named Epitaaf. This photo is taken through the plate glass window on the front of the museum. Unfortunately it was closed when I was there, and apparently is not often open. I'd love to see what they have in there, so am just going to have to find out when it is open, and get back there. In the meanwhile, this photo can count for my participation in James' Weekend Reflections. And for some reason this photo also reminds me of the title page photo at the top of that most wonderful of blogs Décolleté Glimpses...

Peut-être que l'épitaphe est dans le reflet de la vitre... tout ce qu'on aprrçoit entre les lignes... :-)
Belle semaine Owen...

The reflections add to the mystique... but I agree with the comments above. Your mission is to get inside!

A gorgeous and richly colored multi-layered tapestry of history. P.S. Thanks for correcting my misspelling!

A funerary art museum! That must be quite unique! Knowing you, I'm not surprised that you plan to go back! :-)

Un surprenant melange.

this is so beautiful!!! and i think that even if you had laboriously worked to compose this picture to match the epitaph theme, you couldn't have come with a more gorgeous combination of details... very impressive.
