As promised in an earlier post I now have the pictures of the medieval church we visited at St Fagans National History Museum near Cardiff. We were completely amazed to see the finished paintings inside this lovely little church that had been lovingly relocated and restored at the museum, this is what it looked like when they found it, you can read the rest of the story here.
And this is what the outside looks like today.
We had seen the start of the paintings inside the year before, so when we entered the church last year and saw the finished work we were thrilled and astounded at the result. Apparently most medieval chuches were decorated like this as the majority of the congregation couldn't read and often the serman was give in Latin anyway, so the pictures had to tell the story, like this one.
And this one.
This is what the inside looks like from the back wall.
And then of course there were all those wonderful patterns just waiting to be used in a future art work
If anyone is in the vicinity this little church is so well worth the visit and to make things even better, the museum itself is free to enter as it's funded by the Welsh government.
