Medieval wall paintings


These medieval wall paintings (14th Century) were uncovered in North Stoke Church in Oxfordshire
Considering the age I think they have survived very well

  3. How interesting..........they must have looked splendid when first painted!
    Says a lot about craftsmanship and climatic conditions.

  4. Don't you just love it when lost art is found? It's amazing it survived under the later plaster. I especially like doomsday paintings but happily gaze upon any old fragment. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

  6. I wonder what the artist would think all these centuries later.
