Something Different

          Instead of medieval stained glass today, I thought you might like to see my second very most favorite thing from the Louvre:*

The tomb of Burgundian nobleman Philippe Pot.

          This amazing article is life-sized, and so stunningly real that when you enter the room where it is displayed you believe, just for a moment, that you have unwittingly stumbled into a funeral procession from another age.

*My very most favorite thing of all in the Louvre? This guy:

La Mort Saint-Innocent
