A strangely appealing oddity, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: I immediately thought of The Three Stooges, Ray. smile

You always find the most interesting sculptures!

Happy Monday -- here's hoping for a good week
Ginnie Hart: We don't visit many museums, Emily, much preferring to see architecture and such outside, but when we do go inside, I'm glad to find an interesting piece or two. Thank you.
never visited Verona so thank you for this shot, Ginnie. i like the key with the Monday theme.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ayush. I like how you've connected the key to Monday!

Is that Saints Peter and John with Jesus Christ or have I got it completely wrong Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: My guess is you're right, Chad, at least about Peter and Jesus. I actually saw you, Chris and Bill as The Three Stooges. smile

That looks extremely early, Ginnie. Any idea of the date?
Ginnie Hart: Most of the sculptures are from the Romanesque period, Lisl, so, yes, I'm sure this is very old. I just wish I could find out more about it.

those are some ugly mugs lol is the one in the middle Jesus? well the Bible said He had no beauty about Him smile i would still hang this on my wall though lol neat shot!
Ginnie Hart: It looks like Peter holding the Key on the left, Elaine, and Jesus in the middle. Is it John on the right?

Looking out from over the centuries
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Chris. I have a feeling this is very old...like "in the day."

This is such an amazing sculpture, so old and so many details. And yes maybe this is the first edition of 'The Three Stooges'...
Ginnie Hart: I guess some things never change, Astrid??? smile

Surely Peter and Paul are accompanying Jesus. A very fine detail!
Ginnie Hart: Ahhh. So maybe that IS Paul on the right...not John?! Thanks, Philine.
Des détails architecturaux que j'aime beaucoup aussi
Bonne journée
Ginnie Hart: And to think it is probably very old, Claudine...from the Romanesque period.

The Three Stooges - instantly recognisable despite the disguise with the beards worn by two of them.
Ginnie Hart: Come to think of it, Alan, I think all three of them have beards, so maybe they're the other set of Three Stooges from eons ago! smile
Judging by their eyes they seem to be on an acid trip ginnie grin
Ginnie Hart: You surely know much more about this than I do, Bill??!! grin

J'aime les écritures tout autour!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Anne. I agree!
Amazing sculpture, nice photo Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Roland.

Looks religious and Philine may be right - there is what seems to be a halo round the middle man's head. It does seem very old.
Ginnie Hart: I have a feeling all 3 of them have halos, Louis, which makes me think they are the three main "suspects" in the early Christian church as seen by the Romanesque period. Wouldn't we love to know THOSE stories.

Beautiful detail captured in this shot!! Looks like time has slightly eroded someone's face on the right. :-( Have a great week!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Steven. It amazes me that time hasn't all but destroyed this!
An early TV panel show!
Ginnie Hart: HA! I can see the "connection," Tom. smile
Certainly rather strange modelling but then it must be very old.
Ginnie Hart: Older than dirt, I'm sure, Brian. smile
Love their stares! This is a totally "carry on" moment!
Ginnie Hart: Isn't it fun what comes to mind when we see such art, Robin! smile
it is a wonderful old sculpture of Jesus and two apostles Ginnie... nicely framed....peterwink
Ginnie Hart: A different kind of "holy trinity," I suppose, Peter? Thanks.
The left one is definitely St Paul. He's holding the Keys of Heaven.

Not sure about the right one though... St John?

St John's Cross is in the middle smile
Ginnie Hart: That would be Peter, LC. PETER holds the key, remember???? So maybe that's Paul on the right? At first I thought it was John but our resident historian, Philine, says Paul. You're the first one who's mentioned the Maltese cross, so you get a Gold Star for the day. smile
That is a wonderful piece of art.
Ginnie Hart: It did stand out to me, Michael, partly because it reminds me of any number of Three Stooges I'm acquainted with. smile
Isn't that the Knights Templar sign? I admit I've played a little too much Assassin's Creed. tongue

Nice capture Ginnie... smile
Ginnie Hart: Good question, Sudipto. I mostly think of it as the Roman Catholic sign, but that may be the same?
This Monday I join you and Frank in retirement... temporary... but it feels just fine!
A lovely image, Ginnie! I like the guy in the middle... is he supposed to be Jesus?
Ginnie Hart: Astrid, too, joins us on Mondays, Elizabeth, but then joins the rest of you during the work week. And yes, I assume that's Jesus in the center, with Peter holding the key on the left...and either Paul or John on the right? The Three Stooges of another "holy trinity." (If we can't take a joke....)
