From the 17th Century

Not quite as old as some of the murals I have shown but still very old. This one I think dates back to the 17th century and was on the wall of a Church I visited in Wales.

The first one you see is only a partial and the rest may have been damaged at some stage
 The next is behind the altar and shows a bit more though I am not sure what it is meant to be.

 But this I think is a go at the painting Royal Crest painting, the unicorn and crown are shown on this. The church dates from the 17th century so backs this up, least that is what I am surmising.

If you wist to see what a treasure this church is then check back on Sunday to my blog called 
Taking Part in Monday Mural


  1. You never know what you'll find inan old church!

  2. Some of the photos look like the paintings have been uncovered beneath the last layer of wall plaster.
    Very nice.

  3. Nice to see that at least bits of the mural have survived.

  4. Wow! from the 17th century. That's very cool. The bottom two remind me of tapestries.

  5. They hint at a complex history that few of us know. They are a visual gift to those lucky enough to see them. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

  6. That third one certainly does have the royal crest feel to it.
