Murano, Venezia, Italia. Basilica di Santi Maria e Donato. ☆★☆★☆ Il dettaglio su abside. / The details on apse.
The Chichester Reliefs, c.1125, are a pair of reliefs illustrating the story of the raising of Lazarus. They are described by Zarnecki as ‘amongst the most outstanding works of art produced in medieval England’. They were rediscovered in 1829, hidden by woodwork just above the choir stalls of Chichester Cathedral. This first scene depicts Christ approaching Bethany, where Mary and Martha reach out to him in supplication. While we were inadvertently lucky enough to visit while the reliefs were being restored and therefore without protective screens, the first one was unlit, so we had to make do with the torch lights on our phones, making for some slightly eerie looking photographs #romanesque #12thcentury #medieval #cathedral #church #medievalart #medievalarchitecture #westsussex

The church of Saint-Rémy of Tresnay, 🇫🇷. Mentioned in 1130. Its Romanesque plan includes a single vaulted wooden nave, a transept and a choir with apse between two apsidioles. On the outside, the transept and the chevet have modillions carved with animals and masks.
St. Procopius church in #Strzelno
is one of the most well-known examples of Romanesque architecture in #Poland
and the largest of all preserved Romanesque rotundas. The exact date of construction of the church remains unknown. The church was erected in the 12th or at the turn of the 13th century. I’ve seen its pictures in probably every history book throughout my education at schools but never had a chance to see it myself, until now ;) || #Strzelno
Another detail of the glorious Romanesque church at Rosheim, c. 1140-50. This capital is equally charming and strange, carved with a full circle of 24 male heads. They're usually said to be monks, but they have haloes. Old Testament prophets, maybe?
Finnaly something different than baroque. For us the best one!
