My recent trip to Norwich Cathedral and the sighting of Mr Gooding's memorial https://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=4459096535013512763#editor/target=post;postID=8482560597047717823;onPublishedMenu=posts;onClosedMenu=posts;postNum=11;src=link has reminded me of the curious and wonderfully macabre carvings on a series of 17th gravestones inside the cathedral in Kirkwall which were taken up from the nave when renovations were carried out. They were rather partial to a skull or three. Frustratingly I don't understand them beyond knowing they are symbols of death, but it has got me intrigued so I want to find out more. I think they are stunning and I much prefer them to the sentimental Victorian puttos I'm more familiar with.
And on that happy note have a good Saturday one and all!!
